On Using Digital Music News as a Source

Remember yesterday? Remember that weird rumour that said that Apple was planning on killing iTunes music sales within a couple of years? Michael Rockwell looked into the source:

I did some digging on a few Apple rumor sites — MacRumors, AppleInsider, and 9 to 5 Mac — to see how accurate Digital Music News’ reporting has been on companies’ future plans. I was only able to find three instances of original reporting from the site. The published rumors pertained to Spotify and Apple, but none of these stories were proven true.

Digital Music News can sit conveniently next to Digitimes both on an alphabetic scale, and a reliability scale.
