    I know this is nitpicky, but to be an Apple fanatic is to be nitpicky about details like this... On the frontpage, the page title is "Mac Rumors - Apple Mac Rumors and News You Care About," but everywhere else, the site was called "MacRumors", not "Mac Rumors". And "Apple Mac Rumors" sounds a bit strange... how about simply "Apple rumors", since you also cover non-Mac Apple products.

    "MacRumors - Apple Rumors and News You Care About"

    That's what it ought to be.

    Okay, I profusely apologize for the extremely nitpicky nature of the post, but I love the site, and can't help but notice those things... :D

    I noticed this when I first came to the site. I refer to it as MacRumors in my bookmark bar, but it says Mac Rumors in the title. So who is gonna fix this? :rolleyes: ;)

    Just Apple News and Rumors? I think it has become Mac News, Rumors and more. As for the little things, not really a big deal.

    Oh yeh :D.. that is nitpicky :p but if it's going to be referred to as MacRumors then really that first MacRumors in the title bar should be together.

    It always seemed sensible to me. MacRumors is the name of the place, Mac rumors are why it exists.

    I bet that was done intentionally to get the attention of the search engines. Search engines index based on that information, so getting "Mac" and "rumors" in there twice probably increased the pagerank. It's like how people used to put "Pamela Anderson" in their titles even if their sites had nothing to do with Pamela Anderson.
