Link: The Sad State of Apple Rumors ☍

Shared on May 1, 2013

John Moltz makes me yearn for the days of SpyMac and Think Secret:

But that was that: the holy trinity of Apple rumors for a whole decade. Sure was a long time for people to hang their hopes on unicorns and pixie dust. But, then again, that’s kind of what we do.

But I think that, to a certain degree, we’ve idolized these rumors in retrospect. Not necessarily because they seemed like sure-fire winners at the time, but because we followed them for so long. Now that decade of those iconic Apple rumors is over. So, is this the end? Are we destined to nothing more than lousy rumors and ho-hum product announcements?
