Before we get to the meat of this post, we have to give you a little inside information about what is coming next from Apple Recon (would that make this “Apple Recon Recon”??)…we have an exclusive story that none of the other rumor sites have picked up on about a major Apple software initiative. We are working on it for Monday, and we know that it is going to blow your mind. Unlike some sites, we WILL post it when we say we will! We need the weekend to track down all the sources and get it perfect, so please bear with us. In the mean time…
Before we get into the jealousy from the other guys, first we have to give some thanks to some of the other sites out there that have picked up on the Apple Recon ad-free revolution!
O’Grady’s PowerPage, which we love, has us as their top story as of this writing.
MacSurfer’s Headline News, also a long time favorite, has picked up on us, too (under Analysts/Commentary/Editorial/Opinion)!
We really appreciate the coverage by two sites that we have so much respect for.
Back to the topic at hand, however…all is not well in rumorville…some of the other rumor sites have started to sit up and take notice of the new kid on the block, and are none too happy about the way we’ve burst onto the scene. We guess that when you cut the crap, don’t make false promises of upcoming stories that never materialize, and don’t spam the heck out of people with ads and popups, it is a real threat to the Apple rumor scene. Other sites start to take notice when you’ve been the number one site for three days straight on WordPress!!
Well, we like it OUR way, and are glad that you do too! Our readers keep coming through with the Diggs and comments and tips and support!! Keep it coming!! Without further ado, here’s some of the crap you can see from the “other guys” after the jump…MacShrine writes that we have “no known accuracy” (apparently they didn’t do their homework to see how many of the Macworld announcements we got dead right)! We’d like to see what kind of “accuracy” they have!?
MacSlash writes that whether the Apple Event is on “February or April 20th makes little difference”…which we would beg to differ with…is there anyone out there that wants to wait until April 20th for the announcement of Leopard, iLife ’07, iWork ’07, etc.??
And the grandaddy of them all, Mac OS Rumors, sat on “breaking news” for weeks that a tablet is on the way (they have finally updated though, all on separate pages so you have to see dozens of ads to read their crap…we guess they were too busy finding more ways to put up broken pages and cram more flash ads on their page:
This kind of nonsense is exactly why we’re here, ad free and proud of it! Spread the word with a Digg, and we’ll see you soon (and by soon, we mean in the next 24 hours or so…not in the next month!!).
