Is it true that after tommorrow, the mac web as we know it will fail to exist? I have noticed that AppleInsider has already started self-destructing. http://forum.appleinsider.com


Moderators please reply.

Say it aint so, say it ain't so!

This rumor sounds like a 1984-ish April Fools Day joke.

Or maybe Big Brother has been reincarnated with the swarms of corporate lawyers holding an apple in their sweaty palms??

Here I go repeating myself. Say it ain't so.

Also note another "rumor" on that site. Notice the day the "MacBoy" is supposed to go on sale. I think this site is really looking forward to April fool's day.

Methinks I smell an April Fool -- wait a minute that's me!

This is an obvious hoax. I guess reputable sources like Low End Mac get away with it by posting the article in the "Rumor Mill." They can always say it was just a rumor.

Ya got me!
