The Worthlessness Of Mac Rumor Sites

I was asked today by a co-worker if the “[true video iPod](” rumors from ThinkSecret were true:

> Think Secret can confirm recent rumblings that Apple is nearing completion of a completely revamped video iPod that will shed the ubiquitous mechanical click wheel for a touch screen and will sport a 3.5-inch diagonal display.

I could go on and on debunking this, but I think [Matt Thomas]( made a [very clear point]( over at NewsVine, and for the sake of brevity, I will quote it entirely:

> I’m excited about this new iPod.

> In the meantime, I’ll enjoy watching TV content downloaded onto my new Mac mini with DVR that’s connected to my Apple plasma television. Later I’ll listen to my new iPod shuffle — one of the new ones released at Macworld last month — and fire up my new 13.3″ Intel-based iBook to play a few games.

> Life sure would be fun if Think Secret actually had believable sources. Sadly, that ain’t the case.
