    This site is rarely about the MacIntosh computer and the name needs to be changed to Applerumors.com

    This site has become the de facto P.R. site for Apple Inc.:cool:

    Good point but last time I checked its not the easiest thing to transfer a very big website to a new domain. And they would probably have to buy a new domain aswell.
    I wasn't able to change the domain from my website, doubt they could just do that.
    I could be wrong :)

    Why would Arn want to abandon a recognizable name just for accuracy purposes? That makes no sense whatsoever and is a lot of work for no appreciable value

    No offense to Arn or the other admins, but you are thinking about Jim Dalrymple and his site "Loop Insight". Most people think that Apple employees leak directly to Jim and his reliability is looked at as second to none.

    They already own the domain, and if you type it in it redirects to macrumors.com.

    Arn will change MacRumors to AppleRumors when Apple changes the name of iTunes.

    If you understood branding at all, you would know that this company (MacRumors) is not going to change their name without some kind of undertaking. This isn't some ******** personal blog ran by a kid in a basement. It is a company with paid employees.
