    Hey, what has happened to MacOS Rumors?
    The last thing I heard/read was that they were still available via IP. Last post was June 1. Then, that disappeared.

    What's happened to a fixture in the Apple Rumors world?

    I think the official answer is they are gone.

    RIP MOSR.com

    MOSR is not gone for good, they are just trying to fix some (major) DNS issues.

    Prove me wrong. But the direct IP has nbeen DOA for over 4 weeks. They have had sporadic and certainly unprrofessional posting regularity the past 6 to 9 months. And the domain has been DOA for 3 months. DNS problems? I say no way. If they actualy pay a host for the service it would have been fixed long ago. If they hosted themselves, then some sort of simple page would be feasible.

    That along with the late, copied, and generally off quality of the past 12 months of MOSR makes me think its dead.

    I have been a supporter and reader for as long as I remember of MacOsRumors. I hate to see it gone. But face the facts, they lost all credibility, got lax about updates, probably lost advertisers and readers. Its a long uphill road to climb to have some sort of site again.

    But the fact is for at least 2.5 months, they have been unreachable by mere mortals, and the last 4 posts were personal and copies of ld news after the fact. Many more before that were of the same ilk.

    As I said above, RIP MOSR.

    I stand Corrected (partly)

    Well, I will eat crow. They DO exist.

    That said, they still post a bunch of malarky about personal crisis and way off base specs.

    Maybe they are right. But I doubt they have the 'deep' sources any longer. Plus, you need to start easy and spoon feed us some reality if you expect us to believe fantasy.

    Parties to end early for conventioneers

    We should hope that they will remain successful. The more rumors the merrier.

    One more reason to NOT post such things in the current events section... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    MacOSRumors is dead. Gone. Long gone. Actually, it's 2001 material, not 2002, 2003, or 2004, since they've failed to keep their server OR their daily updates in tact back during the 2001-2002 transition. We'll see about that Quad 3.0GHz rumor. 96% reliability, I like it.

    seamuskrat, leave the crows alone. [​IMG]

    Yeah, MacOS Rumors must be gone. In case you've not noticed, the Blogger user posing as MacOS Rumors is a clever troll. Those rumors are satires. They used to post really good news stories... these are nothing like they were. Just read the "Toby" updates.

    It's a shame they're dead. MOSR used to be a regular read.

    Duff-Man says...the obituaries were premature it seems...the site is back and active again, although true to form the "next update" has failed to appear....oh yeah!

    They are back !

    MacOSRumors are back ! And all the funny stuff they make up.

    Interesting this time that they don't predict the GREAT STUFF from Apple being just around the corner.

    Yes, but as I said before, the fake site was probably going to end up being more accurate than the real site.

    Sort of sad to see it go. [​IMG]
