It's the London Evening Standard, silly man. This is the equivalent of a kids comic sold primarily to London commuters to distract them from the brain-numbing commute home on the Tube or British Rail. It has the journalistic integrity of Conrad Blacks big toe (yes, that small).

Some twit misread one of the rumour sites, did no research and, since its the dead/silly season, his editor was too pissed to notice.

Still, it's a good rumour, even though its been around the block a few times. It's just not based on fact and Apple hasn't "launched" anything yet. Still, maybe it brightened a poor commuters day....

Not a leak at all. Sorry. There are several articles on mainstream news sources that are all based off one Reuters article that is based on rumors gleaned from MacRumors.com, ThinkSecret.com and AppleInsider.com

For more info: MacRumors Coverage On Rumor

So there is no real leak like the iMac in Time Canada, but its an accepted rumor that is being believed to be fact by more and more people.

Yup - kinda thought it was too good to be true.... Chalk it up to being misled by one of those monikers that seem to imply authority, when in fact they mask the opposite reality, sort of like thinking "National Post" might have integrity, or "Social Credit" might have something to do with a just society, rather than rabid neoliberalism. ;)

My bad. End thread here.

I would agree that the Evening Standard is crap with headlines but OK with content (unlike morning tabloids). The one thing it tends to share w. Black is his political views :rolleyes:

The article feels like a cross btw a rumour and jumping the gun on the embargo... Sinc: how unusual would it be to have an article one and a half working day ahead of publication (evening paper, tomorrow a holiday, Friday open, no ES during weekends)...
