    Someone remind me again how this is even remotely news? This ad was on the back cover of the New York Times Magazine last Sunday.

    Thanks for nothing.

    Amen, brother. I saw this on my issue of Newsweek too, and somehow managed to resist the urge to submit it to a news/rumors site.

    I've never once complained about what's considered "news" on here, but this has got to take the cake.

    macrumors has posted an article on just about every single Apple ad. whether it was for the iPod or Macs. its of interest to some, and their ads are usually outside of the norm in some way. granted not all of them. but some.

    Its not news; its still only a rumor. It hasn't yet been confirmed by a "trusted source". :)

    Guys stop complaining. It's not a big deal to see an extra news story. It is true that it's on loads of other magazines as well, though. It has a nice, elegant look.

    Yeah, I stood in line, got on TV, very happy, cruise the iPhone related sites once in a while for ongoing news, tips and tricks.

    But a front page story about a print ad that's been everywhere for a week?:rolleyes:

    I'm feeling a bit fatigued.....

    "Touch," as in. . .

    "The Lord touched my soul in a mysterious way," or
    "Mommy, that boy touched me down there!", or
    "I was touched by the awesome beauty of her face," or
    "Tease me, touch me, make me write bad checks!" or
    "You have to be a little bit touched in the head to get excited over a cell phone ad in a magazine."

    :rolleyes:

    Maybe some of us do not care to read the NY Times, or its off-spring. :p Considering the vast amount of (sometimes) questionable things posted here, this seem pretty benign and will probably only gain longevity by posts like yours.

    someone remind me again why people complain about the type or quality or accuracy of content published from a place called Mac Rumors?

    What journalistic standard do you supose they should be held to?

    I would imagine that while a large majority of visitors come here to get the latest on Apple related rumor and news, those same people enjoy reading anything related to Apple wether its late breaking news or not.

    If you want fair and balanced, unbiased news you should try CNN.


    Oh and yes I am fully aware that i put the word CNN in the same sentence as fair, balanced, and unbiased but I am heavily medicated at the time of this posting :p
