    Hey all, I just wanted to tell ya that I've opened a new Apple Rumors-related site (yes, another rumorsite). It's pretty basic at the moment, but I've added a poll and a rumor search feature to it just today.

    Go to AppleRumors.TK to see it.

    What do you think? Either post here or in my guestbook :D.

    Not sure if we need yet another website like this, but I like it anyway!

    I was always worried about advertising on this site like this but these are my sites:

    http://www.brooklineuk.com - My site for selling stuff!
    http://starbase64.brooklineuk.com - Needs alot of work doing on it (I am currently writing a flash version) Is totally made for Escape Velocity gamers. Its where the handel Ensign paris came from, cept. I am Command Paris on it now!
    http://www.ymug.org - My website for the Yorkshire Mac User Group - largest MUG in the UK.
    http://www.colinrose.net - An artists site that I run.
    http://www.applespec.com - A site I did as a favour while the product was downloading!
    http://www.brooklineuk.com/usaf/ - For some reason September 11th made me create this site, i didn't know how to react so I made myself work so I didn't think about it. Most of it doesn't work.

    I am just watching the Olypmic opening ceromony, Well Done US, You have done very well! Bet it was corrieographed (how do you spell that??) on a mac!

    nice looking page. i love stripes. btw that title font looks familiar but i cant place it what is it?

    and a shameless plug for my own website:

    www.ambitiouslemon.com - this is a mac centric site but not rumor oriented, although i plan on occassionally adding a link to other rumor sites when i see something worthwhile. my site is mostly for sharing of mac computing ideas. software reviews, tips for newbies, a place for my desktops and MOSSes, and screenshots. id appreciate if you guys dropped by and let me know what you think. i just got the current revision up about a week ago. and if you guys could help out with viewer submissions that woudl be way cool. also lately i have been considering recruiting a partner to help me keep content flowing, so if anyone is interested let me know. im kinda a graphics freak so if you are on a modem i apologize in advance.

    Heh heh.

    Spelling: Choreographed.

    The title font is Monoglyceride, can't remember where I got it. Some free font page I think.

    I used Lucida Grande for the buttons for an authentic OS X look, and the graphics on the navbar are straight from Apple's iPod page, but altered to be blue.

    Nice site, but like others have said, I think the market is already crowded. The main sites right now pretty much fill all the gaps:

    Left-wing:
    ThinkSecret: probably the most accurate, but only because they post boring news (most of the time)
    Liberal: MacOSRumors: The middle guy - can be completely false or completely accurate.
    Right-wing: Spymac: "multimedia rumors," seems to be growing fast.

    I didn't list AI, because it is dead, IMO.

    And then there is Macrumors, which of course brings all the sites together! So where will you fall in?
