    That's weird. Apple must be getting lazy with the leak prevention.
    Think about it:

    -The case redesign:
    >The aluminum Macbook rumor was true
    >Pretty much every leaked photo was real.
    >The glass trackpad was true
    >The nvidia motherboard chip rumor was true
    >The dual GPU rumor was true

    -The iMac docking station: While misinterpreted, it still sort of was true. The new cinema display has that docking cable for Macbooks, and the display itself resembles an iMac.

    -The "Brick" Manufacturing process was true

    -The October 14th release date was true

    It seems strange that such a large number of rumors came true, don't you think?

    Accuracy of leak information has been getting progressively better. iPhone 3G stuff was almost accurate, except for the rumors about video calls. iPod Nano rumors were pretty spot-on. But yeah, either Apple is getting lazy, or spies are getting better :p

    That is really pushing "sort of true". Whether that iMac docking station ever sees the light of day remains to be seen, but a new cinema display is not even close.

    And there were plenty of false rumours and fake photos doing the rounds. iLife and iWork09, glass trackpads with dock displays, and 16:9 screens to name a few. Most of the real facts emerged early on the 14th itself.

    A lot of the best stuff came in this time the night before. I thought that was a bit strange.
