When the rumors turn out to be a bunch of BS, we blame Apple/Moto/IBM for not doing enough rather than blame the rumor site for being full of sh*t and jerking us around.
Could someone explain the loser psychology that motivates this behavior, please? You'll probably win a Nobel Prize in Psychology if you do.

If all of the rumor sites were eliminated, there would still be this board with people proclaiming/predicting what's to come.
As far as "loser psychology", we are in the minority. It is a real possibility that WINTEL could run Apple out of business (note the proposed anti-trust settlement!). If the Mhz gap becomes a real performance gap, and then keeps expanding, we may actually lose our treasure. So people are worried that Apple/Motorolla/IBM will fail.
