The best scoop of the year is going down and AppleInsider has been missing since Wednesday. What scoop ? Reply 2 of 5 anders Posts: 6,523member July 18, 2004 1:29PM Apple handled that nicely to a mainstream magazine that in return tells its readers that this isn´t anything to write home about. No scoop anywhere, just a well placed feature in a magazine.Besides even if I think the iPod has finally matured enough to be invited into my home basically there is nothing special about this update.The iPod is moving towards perfection and today it went from 95% to 98% IMO. Nothing groundbreaking. Reply 3 of 5 powerdoc Posts: 8,123member July 18, 2004 2:59PM Thanks Anders, the update of the Ipod is not really a scoop. Futhermore, AI announced the fourth generation Ipod some weeks ago.

Yes, 10 days ago AI said September.http://www.appleinsider.com/article.php?id=541If the 4G iPod story isn't worth the front page then I am very confused as to the point of the front page. Future Hardware has had many many running debates on the 4G iPod, The front page has made comments in the past about them, and now it is a non-story, am I understanding that correctly?Please, don't play me for a foul. I hang out on the Web for fun and this has been a favorite spot of mine since before I actually registerd here.You can pass the bull off on the kids, maybe even my 6 kids, but please.

AI didn't get the scoop, so why all the hububb about posting an article about someone else's article that the AI writers are reading at the same time you are? I'm glad AI hasn't yet regurgitated what these original sources have already said. I'd rather they either follow up with more info, commentary or something more to add. It's been, what, a day? A Sunday at that. Kasper and Katie could be at the beach house for all we know. Sign In or Register to comment.
