Now you're putting words in my mouth. When did I ever say meaningful material? But if you want some examples:Last year there was a rumor that Apple was going to release a new TV in March. We got a "nope" from Jim Dalrymple. I think it's pretty obvious who that "nope "came from.In August John Gruber said:Again seems very obvious where that information came from.
Ah so because you can't stand podcasts, or ones you deem "poorly made" they're just to be discredited. Got it. Whatever. I stand by my statement that if Apple wanted these car rumors to die down they could easily make it happen.
I never said Apple was leaking this story. In fact I said I don't think it is coming from them. But that doesn't mean Apple never leaks. I think it's completely naïve to assume they don't. The iMore show is on YouTube.
I fail to see how it's good hype. A lot of people think the idea of Apple building a car is ridiculous. And I wasn't aware that Wall Street was worried about Apple's pipeline at the moment so why leak now?
I'm saying Apple could easily put cold water on these rumors if they wanted to without it being an official comment. Ever heard of Jim Dalrymple's "nope"? We got one of those last year when rumors were flying around that Apple would be releasing a new TV in March.I have no idea where these car rumors are originating from. I'm very skeptical that Apple is the one leaking this stuff.
