Fact-Checking Digitimes

Harry McCracken, for Time:

But the thing is, Digitimes isn’t just wrong some of the time. When it comes to the big Apple stories, it’s wrong most of the time. Sometimes wildly so. It’s reported that its sources had said that Apple was going to release MacBooks with AMD processors, iMacs with touch screens, iPhones with built-in projectors and iPads with OLED displays. Those products, and others mentioned in Digitimes articles, never showed up.

Some people will rush to the defence of these rumour-mongers if these things eventually become true. That’s nonsense. Digitimes has a terrible track record, and that’s probably because they print any rumour that comes their way. Via Brian X. Chen.
