No Apple Television-Related Event Scheduled for Next Month




Following today's report from Jefferies analyst Peter Misek claiming that Apple will be holding a television-related product event in March, perhaps to introduce developer tools for the Apple TV and a future television set lineup, The Loop's Jim Dalyrmple has weighed in with one of his typical one-word answers to refute the claim: "Nope."

Dalrymple has impeccable accuracy with such comments, so it appears certain that there is no such event planned by Apple.

Didn't think so. This sort of stuff belongs at WWDC.

That's the fastest a rumor has been countered in macrumors history.

I wish there was a quick way to reference how accurate these people actually are based on past predictions.

I called it this morning after reading Misek's various predictions. Citing "channel checks" for knowledge of a March event to announce an SDK simply made no sense unless he had some alternate meeting for the term "channel checks".

Stop posting analyst predictions on MR. You're only encouraging such foolish behavior.

1) How do you pronounce his last name?

2) It's obvious he's very well connected and is there for controlled leaks. But how did he get SO well connected to Apple that they run rumors and leaks through him?

No and he won't. He has too much respect for the company to make those kind of claims.

I wouldn't call it respect, exactly. It's pretty clear that Dalyrmple's source is the very highest level of Apple. Since he's 100% correct, that's the executive committee itself: Cook, et al. So both sides has a good thing going: By giving D. only accurate info, Apple has a highly effective. yet unofficia.l way to manage rumors and expectations while holding secret as much info as possible. D., by faithfully reporting Apple info, gets to be the go-to guy for Apple info. At this point, when Jim D. gives a Yep or Nope it's as good (better, actually) as if Tim Cook were to take out a full page ad in the NYT and promise something up and down.

I'd say both sides "respect" what they get out of the relationship.

I fail to understand why halfway-reputable rumor or news site would pay ANY attention to what ANALYSTS say. They have no insight. They are guessing, and they have never been right about anything. They are not right about their own names. They have no information.

Everyone else is so concerned with plastering things like "people familiar with the matter", "our sources", "insiders tell us" to attempt to lend credibility to their claims. People are writing essays today around the web on the topic. Jim comes out with a "Nope." - gotta love it.

That's of course an overstatement. Some of them do get info...Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI for example has excellent information. Not 100% perfect, but pretty darn good.

Misek doesn't have a great track record, and we're of course adding this one to our tracking board.

Because they generate page (and therefore ad ) views.

Also because even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Most of the stuff that analysts give away for free though is very poor. Frankly, they too often have ulterior motivations that put money in their pockets.

But yes... you'd think that more of them would be more accurate.

Jim is 100% accurate. The rest all have worse track records.
