Well this thread has started its downward spiral toward oblivion.
Bush vs. Clinton, geez where the hell did that come from?
Anyway, latest updates:
Deep Mac is *Still* working at this job, so my post to this board has not ended his career.
He is still maintaining his stance on workstation Macintosh systems based on the test bed machines he is doing his QA work on...
He is still happy to talk and speculate and share information...
Some observations I wanted share about the Future Hardware Message area:
<RANT ON>Yes, I know I keep forgetting that on AppleInsider if your post count is too low and you share some gossip there are many here that feel some how your credibility is suspect. "Talk to the hand", said one poster. Well, since this is all speculation and rumor my thought is: What Credibility? Mac rumors are for entertainment and discussion, or so I think. Remember people what you read here is seldom fact, mostly perception, and possibly some educated theories tossed in for good measure. In alot of cases, it's just plain fantasy.
To put it in perspective, my Source wanted to share some secrets, and I can certainly say that he believes what he knows and what he told me are "Secrets". Are they in fact? I don't really know that. I trust *HIS* perception on the matter. Is his information factual? I trust his facts as he percieves them, but are his facts the Truth? Again, I don't know. I take it on faith that he is being truthful.
The point in posting his information was for ulimate purpose of generating discussion and the idea of "Workstation Macs" is a compelling concept, or so I think.
At times when reading this Forum, I see people get worked up, (well as far as the written word can convey Worked Up" anyway) about the speculation and Gossip they read here. I suppose my humble request is that all of us need not just be skeptical, but just plain relate to what is spoken here as Gossip, Theory, and Fantasy. At the same time let us not lose sight of the value this sort of writing does have.
It creates great discussion, and if any of you have looked around of late great discussion in of itself is a rare commodity.
Sorry for rambling, I just wanted to get that off my chest. In closing I want to Acknowledge everyone that posts on Apple Insider that you are really great communicators and express yourselves in a way that creates, for me, a profound sense of community. Truely you guys have got something unique.
Don't loose sight of it. Really! If you do my daily reading habits are going to have to change and I don't want to read MOSR any more than I have to.
