PCMag.com’s Sascha Segan has a simple plea: “Stop the iPhone 5 Rumor Insanity.”
I think you mean "simple plea."
A 12 word article and 1/12 of it is a typo. Solid reporting technologizer.
Sorry for the typo–I’m very, very human about such things–but I don’t regret doing short posts when all I want to do is point you towards something which I think is worth reading.
Just like this post, iPhone "news" is guaranteed to get page-views. I just don't understand what there is to get excited about, with regard to iPhone rumors. Each report on the rumors will consist of only 2 things.
1) The next iPhone will be better than the last one. "It will be faster, more memory, etc." Nothing we don't already know.
2) Speculation about elements which are totally unknown, which just reflects what the writer wants in his/her next phone, and is not based on any actual reporting. "It will be bigger/smaller", "It will/won't have 4G", "Apple is making 2 models: a cheap one, and a regular one".
Any of the rumors would probably be interesting if they were true, and based on some inside knowledge of what Apple's actually building. But that's not how these rumors work. Even the one's with claim to reference "sources inside Apple" are usually proven to be inaccurate once the next phone is finally revealed.
