The iPhone came out in June. It was considered revolutionary.

I think it was a joke, see how he is being a pompous jerk by ending his post with his name?

At least that's how I saw it, gave him the benefit of the doubt.

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?

Apple's got 100 people working on a magic watch nobody wants and can't be bothered to update an AppleTV everybody wants.

Was hoping they would do something in March, otherwise there will be no announcements until WWDC? Maybe we'll get iOS 7 preview earlier, like they did in the past.

If you ever visit Jim's site, you'll notice that he doesn't dabble in rumors. Just straight reality.
i'd say more than one word could be more informative.

1) Dal-rim-pill

2) Apple doesn't run rumors and leaks through him. Notice how "nope" isn't a rumor or a leak? Jim is well connected with people at Apple who trust him with information BECAUSE he doesn't start rumors or leak info. What he does do is squash stupid and incorrect rumors like this. And very occasionally he confirms them with a "yep".

Usually they have an iOS event around this time but no new products. June is when they announce new stuff.

Macrumors is just quoting other folks.

LOL. the thread down the page still has folks thrashing each other with back and forth commentary generating ad page views.

Frankly, "front page" Macrumors stories tend to have something in common. High accuracy isn't it.

I wouldn't be surprised if apple sees a story in the news they don't like, one they don't want to brew for long, so they call him up and say "hey jim, kill this one for us with a nope"

Because he does exactly what they tell him to do no more , no less.

So if they want to pop the balloon on a rumor this just pops the balloon. He doesn't add replacement material or alternative rumor. Insert pin. pop. done. He also is likely told things and strictly follows NDAs. (so saying nothing is just as important, if not more so, than saying something. )


Even without inside Apple sources most folks would have a good track record on accuracy if just said the analysts were wrong on a consistent basis.

Ah, so nice that you put women in the same category as inanimate things that are bought and sold.

The concept of women as chattel is not dead...isn't that nice!?

Stay classy, Mate...

That's the point. If Apple wanted to be informative, they could just issue a press release.

Here's what I imagine happened. Someone at Apple hears about BS rumors that are getting people excited about a non-existent event. Apple wants to shut it down but doesn't want to set a precedent by breaking their wall of silence. So, someone calls Jim and says "kill this - now." Jim posts "nope." Threat neutralized.

Apple doesn't want us to know any more now, they just don't want us to be pissed off because something they were never planning on doing didn't happen. I actually really appreciate Jim's terseness.
