Just Days After WWDC and the Rumor Sites Have Little Else To Report

I’m not one to boycott rumor sites because they do occasionally provide some juicy tidbits of knowledge—such as letting me know that new MacBook Pros were likely to be released last Tuesday.

But they bug me when all they can think of to report these past several hours is the fact that Amazon.com did exactly what they always do for every single high-profile product they sell—put up a page saying the item is available for pre-order. The moment they did that, every single Mac rumor mill had to immediately throw up a news flash that you could pre-order Mac OS X 10.5.

Hence, the rumor sites have broken my long-running streak of having not handed out an IotM award. Congratulations.
