Good On You Macgasm

Joshua Schnell at Macgasm has announced that they will no longer be covering Apple rumors.

…I can’t really stomach writing the same story year after year. You can pretty much take an entire years worth of iPhone rumors, and rewrite them again the following year by changing iPhone 5 to iPhone 6. I’m not even joking, it happens a lot.

This is welcome news. The entire Apple product rumor ecosystem is a toxic cesspool that hasn’t generated anything other than page-views in years and it’s high time that “respectable” Apple news outlets stopped pandering to it. Hopefully more sites will follow this example so we can return to those heady days when people writing about Apple put some actual effort into it instead of acting as stenographers for Digitimes.
