Geekazine Stance on “Rumor Mills”
I might be shooting myself in the foot, but you know, I am not a big fan of the Rumor mill. Especially when it comes to Apple products. In the last 6 months, we have seen and heard about products that don’t materialize. The Apple Mini iPhone and Netbooks come to mind.
While I DO believe that Apple is making a Tablet, I don’t want to get caught up in the hype. That way we won’t have to turn around and say it didn’t happen. We’ll leave the rumor mill to TechCrunch who will tell you about the $800 Netbook and Touchscreen trackpad.
Even Patents cannot tell a whole story. Remember the rumor about an iPhone Flip? The iPod was suppose to get a facelift with buttons all around the device.
From now on, we at Geekazine will give a “Rumor” the attention it really deserves. When it becomes fact, we will properly report on it.
P.S. This is not at any means a dig on TechCrunch or it’s subsidiaries. It is otherwise a very informative website.
P.P.S. I understand this comes AFTER the post by Frank called Tabble. That post will stay active.
