    gizmodo is so full of crap anyway, it's pathetic. they really are a bunch of immature kiddies that try to get attention any way possible. it's best to just ignore them

    Also Last time I checked Gizmodo was not involved in the rumors.. they seem more involved in what Engadget is posting then rewording it and posting it on their site

    Gizmodo is OK, MacRumors is OK, Appleinsider is OK, my mother-in law is OK: they are all sources of entertaining news, no more and no less. So the Giz guys should put a rocket up their derrière, light it and shut up while they enjoy the fireworks.

    Gizmodo is run by a bunch of childish bastards. Can't remember the last time they actually posted something constructful.

    That is actually not true. The 'Bastard' part I have no idea as I have no inside information regarding their family history. But they do post some interesting stuff and they can be funny.

    That i do take offense to (if you can actually take offense about **** like that - I mean seriously...)
    Engadget are really boring. I mean really really really boring. And I guess that's the biggest insult to a tech blog. So there you go. Boring.

    BUt right after that they said

    are non-sourced, usually building up from the updrafts of the blog/analyst/network news circle jerk vortex.

    They said that those types of rumors are the ones ignored by MacRumors and AppleInsider. It's a compliment.

    I don't get it... They complimented MacRumors

    Also, I like Gizmodo... They are pretty funny.

    The majority of Apple rumors ignored by the veterans at sites like Macrumors and Apple Insider are non-sourced, usually building up from the updrafts of the blog/analyst/network news circle jerk vortex.


    i.e. Of the rumors rejected by veterans at MR and AI, these rejected rumors are usually non-sourced, usually building up from the updrafts of the blog/analyst/network news circle jerk vortex.

    Giz isn't dissing MR or AI, it's just saying they reject some rumors, and of those rumours, most of them haven't got a source.

    The site linked to is pretencious - talking about "we", where there is no feedback, no open information to show user input, just a way to send a message to the creator.

    They got it wrong - it's the linked site that is a desperate plea.

    Sorry, the stuff Gizmodo posts is just plain copied and stupid. The front page things Macrumors posts is full of insight and well written.

    I stopped reading Engadget due to the amount of faggotry in their posts.

    And I read Gizmodo with a giant spoon of salt since Blam started to mix political articles with tech news, especially when he didnt even understand the political situation he complains about.
