堵塞泄漏

周二公布的经过调整的iPod阵容完全没有受到谣言工厂的关注Note to crackpots: this is not a “chilling effect” of Apple’s lawsuits; to say so implies the rumor sites had information, but were intimidated from publishing it事实并非如此 - 例如,Apple Insider继续发布它可以得到的任何东西,包括看起来像摩托罗拉“iTunes手机”的Xbox-y外观手机的看上去模仿的模型(我不喜欢链接到Apple Insider或任何其他提供弹出广告的网站。)

简而言之,这是良好的老式泄漏堵塞的结果谣言网站没有关于新iPod的信息,因为没有人对它们进行过抨击。

可笑的是,Think Secret被缩减为这个事后报道

Apple tweaked its iPod line-up Tuesday, eliminating the remaining monochrome iPod models in a move that Think Secret预言二月里。

The consolidation of Apple’s iPod line resulted in both the standard 20GB iPod and 20GB U2 Edition iPod being upgraded to color screens with photo supportThe 20GB remains priced at $299, while the U2 Edition saw a $20 reduction to $329.

有趣的是,如果你按照链接查看它们“预告”到底是什么,你会得到一份报告2月18日声称:

Within the next two weeks Apple will announce an updated iPod mini with a color screen and higher capacity hard drive, Think Secret has learned.

Highly reliable sources have confirmed that the next iPod mini will gain a full-color active-matrix TFT screen while the form factor will remain largely unchangedThe color screen will be able to display colors clearly and brightly regardless of ambient lighting, even outdoors in direct sunlightThe new screen will be about the same size as the current iPod mini display and will sport a 176 × 132 resolution.

Apple’s move to a color screen on the iPod mini is part of the company’s shift away from monochrome displays, sources saidStandard iPods will also gain color screens across the board with the next update later this year.

我的意思是,文章的标题是“iPod mini移动到彩色屏幕,等待更新”在Think Secret的世界里,这个故事就像准确一样。

与几乎密不透风的盖子相比,将这些微小的iPod更新保留在谣言之外,苹果公司继续关注他们即将切换到所有Mac的英特尔处理器的消息这很可能是10年来最大的Mac新闻,也是Mac传言网站的新闻没有

事实上,直到“华尔街日报”在公告发布前两周打破这个故事,唯一对此有所了解的人是,在所有人中,保罗瑟罗特是的,就像Paul Thurrott一样,我长期以来一直谴责Apple的所有事情都是错误的除此之外,他是对的(和我错了。)

4月26日,也就是“华尔街日报”广泛讲述这个故事的一个月前,瑟罗特写下了他的两句话。WinHEC 2005会议日报

This one’s bizarre, but we heard at lunch today that Apple is unhappy with the PowerPC production at IBM and will be switching to Intel-compatible chips this very year是的,认真的。

就是这样,这就是他所写的全部内容,但它几乎都是正确的有趣的是,他把它扔出去只是一点点,只是他在午餐时听到的东西,在苹果和Mac OS X几乎没有存在的会议上。

整个Mac社区真的对此毫不在意Not just the rumor sites, but the developers, too — there were literally gasps at the WWDC keynote when Jobs unveiled the slide that said, “It’s true.” But at least in some small circles that don’t (or didn’t) intersect with the Mac universe, it was an open secret我认为Thurrott的来源要么来自英特尔,要么是来自英特尔某人的二手资料来源无论如何,这是一个独家新闻,而Thurrott值得称赞。
