Can we have some better quality rumours please

Here is one example:

I will quote some part of the article that are sub-standard and say they they are.

Apple be releasing the iPad 3 with high-resolution "Retina" display in March as is widely expected
Apple release things then they are ready. There are no expected release dates for not as yet announced products. No one expects unannounced products at a certain time.
ie. Made up story by M-R.

the company will follow that up with the release of the iPad 4 in October
Proved last year that the 2 iPads in one year rumour was 100% false. And was proved again this year false. Using the iDevice product cycle. Pretty much common sense this one.
ie. Made up story by M-R.

The rumor is somewhat reminiscent of last year's round of claims,
If you realise this rumour is similar to the ones put up here last year then why is this rumour put up this year??
M-R did not learn from their mistakes of last year, ie. not thinking before putting up articles.

But its information is generally considered unreliable given a significant number of claims that have failed to materialize.
Writing rumours based from sources that are widely known to be very unreliable is not a good idea.


There have been a few such articles of similar poor quality. I just ask can the M-R staff think before they put up articles. With a little thought you'd weed out the very stupid articles and still have a many many good ones to share with us all.

You have to keep in mind that there is a very broad audience on macrumors. Articles that appeal to some dont appeal to others
