    Hey Arn, how come no credit was given to ThinkSecret for the accuracy of their rumors concerning Apple's latest iBook and Mac Mini updates?

    You did mention how unreliable DigiTimes rumors are, so credit should have been given to ThinkSecret for once again hitting the nail on the head.

    I have to admit that their track record of late, law suit or not, has been pretty impressive :D

    Just kidding. Historically, Think Secret has done a great job keeping ahead of the rumormill competition.

    Sometimes arn does a complete wrapup pointing out who was on target and who was off mark, after summarizing rumors before a big event.

    In this case, I think the "man bites dog" theory applies. Think Secret routinely has newsworthy stories so the story that Think Secret had a newsworthy story isn't a newsworthy story.
