The end of MacRumors

Screen Shot 2016 01 05 at 6 02 54 PM

A few months ago, I complained to MacRumors editors that their site, originally published by Arn, who used to regularly attend my Macworld parties and was an insanely good guy but even better at sniffing out Apple rumors and verifying them is no longer a rumor site.

Every 7-10 days, a new rumor is posted but every single day, 10+ articles are posted about technology news. I can’t take it anymore. After 13 years of having Mac Rumors in my RSS reader, I’m removing it today. So long Mac Rumors.

I assume Arn is still involved but with so many paid writers, I guess it was time for them to move to a more frequent posting frequency. They should have done it with a brand-new domain and kept MacRumors fully a site about rumors. 

Good luck competing with Gizmodo and Engadget.
