So instead of writing their own article mentioning MacRumors, they're copying verbatim? Weird.....have you talked to them about that?

That's weird. It's one thing if they link to the story on MacRumors and write a brief summary of the article but that's a little odd.

the weridest part is that it also came from their rumors dept., of course i'm joking because they stole even that. I mena at the very least they could click your MB link and write their own article on that link

But even more interesting is that its a MacRumors article referencing a MacBidouille post. Why not just go to the source?

That's definitely over the line.

What'd they say?

Arn, didn't u used to have an XML sheet with all the latest stories? Is it still in place? Could they possibly just be formatting an MR XML news feed of sorts?

I hadn't noticed that, very strange.

I predict that another site will post an article that goes like this:

According to O'Gradys PowerPage, MacRumors.com is reporting that MacBidouille claims to have reliable information on upcoming PowerBook updates.

It is very possible that it will be MacOSRumors.com posting this :rolleyes:
