    By popular demand...

    Archive of rumors for specific product lines. Note, these pages contain far and away a minority of articles posted on MacRumors.com. Only items specifically related to each of these products is listed in their respective pages.

    http://ipod.macrumors.com
    http://emac.macrumors.com
    http://imac.macrumors.com
    http://ibook.macrumors.com
    http://powerbook.macrumors.com
    http://powermac.macrumors.com
    http://xserve.macrumors.com

    It should be most useful for individuals who don't read MacRumors regularly and want to get "caught up" on the rumors for a particular product.

    Individual links to these sections is also now on MacRumors.com's main site on the bottom right corner.

    MacAmazon

    Or better yet, if you are able to categorise a rumour as the thread unfolds, how about a link top/bottom of the thread to "More rumors like this" or "Recent rumors about (whatever)" - Just like Amazon!!

    That way we don't have to look at the bottom of the main page, the related info is right at hand in a contextual fashion!

    And while you are at it, its time for a colour change - maybe brushed aluminium??? :D

    That last bit was a joke btw.

    Its all good Arn!

    aw, i prefer the chaos of hunting and pecking throughout MR so i can find the rumors that fit my preconcieved notions of reality, or the nonreality of future apple products. the thrill is gone.

    a great idea though ...

    this is why arn makes the big bucks.

    I thought of "software.macrumors.com too", but if most Apple apps are seldom the focus of rumors then perhaps at least "osx.macrumors.com".

    Also, iTunes Music Store IS the focus of a lot of rumor attention, so how about "itunes.macrumors.com"?

    (I can see you'd only bother with the major/frequent rumor topics--no need to get out of contro!--but I like what's been done.)

    Categorization is good. I fear nobody will see those links though (and I'll easily forget...). May I suggest a dropdown menu towards the top of the page instead?

    The PowerBook rumors archive had to be pretty easy to setup.

    New PowerBooks to be released in the next 2 weeks.

    How about creating a forum for naive clueless people to post wistful optimistic and incredibly misguided or ill-informed speculation about the G5 Powerbooks coming next week? (And the week after that, and after that).

    Re: Product Category Rumor Archives

    Not to be negative, but I think you're approaching this the wrong way around. What you should do is the ability to filter out the categories you find irrelevant.

    For example, in my case I'm interested in Powerbook and xServe rumours, but not much else. With the current scheme, I have to either visit two addresses or keep using the main page.

    My suggestion: have a setup screen (or, since there are so few categories, you could keep it on the front page) like this:

    Show: [x] Powerbook [ ] iBook [ ] xServe

    This would be far more useful than separate domains for each area.

    :)
