    G'day,

    Today I see Apple has updated their MacBook Airs, as noted on your news page.

    Thing is, leading up to this official, actual news item, there's been heaps of rumours and speculation about the upgrades... And each time, I've skimmed the headline and thought it was fact...

    Could we perhaps get some tags for the start of the news page headlines, that clearly identify whether the "news" is in fact a fact, or just part of the rumour mill???


    Cheers,

    cosmic

    The news headlines are usually quite clear when they're fact or rumor. The writing style and words used in the title themselves defines what context they are in.

    How about when we get notifications in Notification Center on OS X?

    The other day people were freaking out because they thought Apple had released a "Gigantic" TV because half the heading was cut off. Turns out, it was an iPhone ad. :p
