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.
The WWDC date has been rumored ever since the conference got pushed back.Marchhttp://www.macrumors.com/pages/2003/...10042739.shtmlhttp://www.macrumors.com/pages/2003/...25130959.shtmlMayhttp://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.]
