In TidBITS, we limit ourselves to that which is actually known (and hopefully useful). Why? Because trafficking in rumors adds unnecessarily to the hubbub of our lives - and now we have some numbers to back that up. The Stupid Apple Rumors site tracked rumors on numerous different Apple-related Web sites and found that, overall, the rumors are false more than 75 percent of the time. Or, to put it another way, they're mostly just making stuff up. We prefer better plot lines and character development in our fiction.follow link
Better Text Formatting in iPhoto
If you're creating a card or book in iPhoto, and you're not happy with the formatting options for the text (such as line spacing or justification), copy the text out to TextEdit, make the changes you want there, and paste it back into iPhoto, which will retain your changes.
Why We Don’t Cover Rumors
However, I remember that in the early days of TidBITS you often used the attribution Pythaeus (aka firstname.lastname@example.org) for anonymously sourced info. Back in those times when news spread in simpler and slower ways (e.g., MacWeek), that was a classy way to acknowledge unofficial info that we wouldn't have heard otherwise.
Now that any idiot can spread rumors on the net (and most do), I miss those Pythaeus appearances and the responsible way you handled them. But your current approach is an excellent one. Thanks.
