Rothenberg and dePlume have collaborated on articles before, and this is the second Ciarelli / Rothenberg article.

Is Nick dePlume even his real name? I always thought it was just a play on the term "nom de plume" (a pen name).

No, Nick dePlume is not his real name - that's why I asked if Nick Ciarelli is his real name.

gollum is a great name...think about what happened to smeagul...he was a relatively normal guy until he got his hands on the ring....after seeing/using it it started to bend his will/thoughts to its own...it became such an overpowering force that its powers ripped away his very personality until he became a simple pathetic slave to its wishes.....
sounds good for a new powermac, no?....power that will make you lose yourself..LOL!

CONFIRMED!!!
Attention Internet Users!

"it's" contraction of "it is"
"its" possessive form of the pronoun "it".

It's shameful how grammar on the Internet is losing its accuracy.

Sounds like we need those weapons inspectors. They can't find sh*t in Iraq, but maybe they can find Kasper Jade.

*Frantic shift-apple-3 pushing of AI frontpage news*

Anyway... Maybe the PM 970's will only run 10.3b+.. Ever thought of that? Maybe Gollum is the name for this WWDC-build of 10.3... After all, motherboard support for all those things rumored to be in it, its quite a lot for a 10.2.x update..

News still up btw.

"Removed At the Request of Apple Legal".

Hmmm.

Unless I see the actual letter from the 'Fedayeen Steve', and see the exact wording, I really don't believe it.

It is the easiest thing to raise your kudos by taking an article down 'at Apple's request'...

Lets see the letter!!

I doubt MacRumors would do that. Especially since it wasn't their story anyway - how could it improve their rep when it wasn't their story?

Why isn't it off AI? I can think of two reasons:
1. They can't find anyone running the site.
2. They know noone reads the AI front page.

Eh...they weren't the first with the G5/970 rumors.

They've been floating around the 'net for weeks, months even.

Check the macrumors backlog or Macbidoobie for all the past articles.

I'm sure having an optimized compiler will be a Good Thing, but I'm suspicious that the lack of compiler optimization would nearly cancel out so many of the benefits of the 970 vs. the G4.

If this were true, Mac software companies would be in a bit of a bind: Sell two different versions of every OS X app, or sell one compromise version for both G4s and 970s.

Well, being optimized for the 970 and being optimized for the G4 are not necessarily mutually exclusive. It could be that optimizing for the 970 may not effect G4 performance at all (excluding, of course, 64 bit code).

Umm AI was the only that said that they were in fact going to be called POWERMAC G5 and would in fact be at WWDC.

Eveyrone else said powerpc 970 was going to be used but did not say G5 from what i remember

Oh....they were the first to pen the 'G5' moinker. It all becomes clear now...

Seriously though, it doesn't really matter if they were right about the 'G5' name. Hell, two years ago, the Reg said the 'G5' was coming.

Concerning WWDC:

The WWDC date has been rumored ever since the conference got pushed back.

March
http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2003/...10042739.shtml

http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2003/...25130959.shtml

May
http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2003/...27091120.shtml

Sure, it would be great to see AI come through with a rumor like this, but my point is that Appleinsider was not the first to rumor the WWDC date. That's all the AI article is at this point. A rumor. It's been rumored long before the AI article. Macbidoobie also said it would be previewed/released at WWDC.

[edit: Like I said, I'd love to see AI come back into the rumors community. And with a scoop like the 'Smeagol' name, it's well on its way. I'm not trying to be 'anti-AI' if that's what you are thinking. I'd just like to give credit where credit's due. Kudos to AI for the 'Smeagol' thing. I started a thread on it at Macrumors, and it made the most recent front page article.]

I'm not sure what legal right apple has to force a news site to take an article off. If the site had pictures or specs on the product that would be different. The article on AI's page doesn't seem to reveal enough for apple legal to have a legal reason to have them pull the article.

Which makes me wonder. What did the Macrumors article have that the Appleinsider doesn't?

Or does Apple not know about the AI article?

Way back in the day. Apple legal requested many of AIs articles pulled.

I remember there was a whole series of Adobe legal pulls, and then later Apple Legal pulls. This was way before the slaptech takeover.

The G3 as we know it is made by IBM - and I don't think Motorola has ever formally used "G5" as a name for one of their chips. They've just been the 8000-series processors, or the Book-E processors, or something similar.

Anyways, why not let this be an opportunity to give "G5" a good name?
