Grape vine: PowerBook G5 has AT&T Wireless web capabilities built in! (90% Reliability)

During that excruciatingly painful trip to Boston, your favorite rumormongers ran smack into a Mobile Quickie Mart, but later into a Prototype of Apple's new PowerBook G5! (See yesterdays report for specs). Boy are we juiced up like monkeys for this bad boy and have saved the last scoop for you today.

You are hearing it first right here on Rumors, Apple is very very secretly partnering with AT&T to include a AT&T wireless technology in the PowerBook G4 that will give you the advanced power of the AT&T Wireless GPRS/EDGE network built on GSM. The network is by no small means a very fast one, but business types like ourselves on the go will overwhelmingly bow at its presence on an Apple laptop.

We should stress that the development of the new PowerBooks are very much ongoing, and the Mac rumormongering world is very much at a point presently where many things (notably the yields of PPC 970FX processors upon which Xserve G5s and new PowerMacs depend) remain very murky. Please do keep your grains of salt handy for the time being; we do not expect to be able to accurately extrapolate many things long-term until a few Months, and iPod minis actually ship and we can gauge IBM's ability to stay on-course with its future PPC 9xx processors.

According to festerers at the roots of the grape vine Apple and ATT will have a special data package available for Mac users who choose to buy a plan. One source, a very good friend of your head-hancho Ryan, and a sister in law to another Rumors staff member, says the deal on Mac users plates will be 50MB a month of bandwidth for $29.95. (Reliability 79%).

If the new G5 PowerBook users are animals and go over 50 MB they will have to pay $0.0127 per additional KB, the grape vine said.

All in all, we are now on our way back from the Macworld show and boy was it a Yawner. By the time we got their yesterday, some exhibitors had already packed up and left. We attempted to visit the Apple Store in Boston, but for some reason we could not find it.

Do you have any tips? It seems our email is not functioning due to the ongoing DNS issues, which should be resolved any day now. If you have tips, please post them in the comments section. Thanks ! Rumors Staff!

This is the same AT&T Wireless that will soon be merged into Cingular? Who knows what services will live on in the combined entity...

Your last blog contains some rather blatant errors. In the 2nd paragraph you mention a G4 PowerBook. Also, if 50MB per month of bandwidth is provided by AT&T with the special data package, no one is going to byte of that.

This is just crap. Building some shitty GPRS thing will just make the book obsolete even faster. Not to mention the different standards and Cell providers around the world. It makes no sense.

Impossible, you can't partner with one vendor unless you arn't going to export. Besides with whole world is building commercial wifi networks so it would be more likely to have airport built in not GPRS ridiculous.

You are so full of crap. I found http://www.yourdailymac.com/
the last time they updated was 2003, and even back then their main article on the front page is how MOSR just lies and you dont have any sources.
Why would they build in GPRS? Its just as easy to make a PCMCIA card which would then be compatible with all powerbooks and could be removed for export models. Or better yet, just sell it seperately. Sheesh.

I've been reading responses from other readers. From what they are telling you, I would say that you guys are done. Your site is down more than up, and the stuff you post isn't useful. Your 'DNS' and 'domain' issue has been going on for months. How long does it take to get a problem like that fixed? - Not that long.

I think it's time to turn out the lights at the Black Light media building and call it a wrap.

Considering Apple themselves even said a PB G5 would not arrive before the end of the year, this is just pure BS again.

You guys know that this is a troll? There is no more MacOS Rumors.

Think about it: this was the perfect anti-Apple-/anti-AppleRumors-troll opportunity. MacOS Rumors shut down, and with the advent of free Blogging... you could just say you are MacOS Rumors and proceed with the satires.

If you see MacOS Rumors again, it will probably be in real website form.

So, again, I will say: THIS IS A TROLL. STOP WASTING YOUR TIME. THIS IS NOT THE REAL MACOSRUMORS. MACOSRUMORS IS NO MORE**at least for the time being

I was so worried in your absence. I can't wait for more dirt. When will we see the G5 PB drawings???

Ryan, why don't you just go get a job and stop with the stories? Didn't the fact that nobody visited your last site tell you anything???

In case some of you haven't made the connection...

While it's not impossible that this is the real Ryan Meader and that this really is some temp site while we await the return of MOSR to its own domain, the odds are really, really slim.

Consider this...

How long has www.macosrumors.com been down? A long time. How long does it take to pay $10 and get your domain back, if for some reason you really did allow it to die?

And if the problem is not the domain name but rather a server issue, consider this: Why would you post on blogger.com, instead of just paying a few dollars a month and having your site hosted on one of the hundreds of servers out there, so that you could retain your domain name, which took only an hour and $10 to re-purchase and get running again?

Furthermore, observe the writing. The style is much more informal and conversational, the usual hint of sarcasm is lacking, and the grammar, style, and structure are terrible. This is a far cry from the old MOSR, lacking both the witty, sarcastic style and the excellent control of language it used to have.

In addition to all this, the both the stories and the rumors seem increasingly unlikely. Absurd, even. A partnership with AT&T? Unlikely that Apple would go into that market while limiting themselves so completely to one distributor. It's a brilliant idea; but one would expect far better implementation than that from Apple.

And finally, a blogger account is FREE!!! That means that anybody at all could do this, and it wouldn't cost them a thing.

There's the pieces to your puzzle. Let's put them together:

MacOSRumors.com goes down, and after a couple months, it's pretty unlikely that it will come back. Some guy goes out and gets a blogger.com account, and he starts posting. He makes up stories and he creates rumors. And the fact is that Rumors did, at one point, experience server and domain issues. So naturally, many believe that this is just what they've had to do to continue updating. I even did for a moment, before I actually read the updates.

Now the question is, why would anyone do that? What would be the point of pretending to be MacOSRumors.com? Does someone just not have a life? No. Actually, someone is quite an amazing scam artist.

Think about it. Rumors finds a way to come back, and tells stories about editors having tragedies without health insurance, and lawsuits, and on and on, and Toby being hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. And loyal MOSR readers, as they always have, pull out their wallets and donate to the cause.

And Mr. Blogger D. Scamartist rakes in hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Still doubt? One last red flag: "at least $35". MacOSRumors.com never asked for "at least" anything. They suggested an amount ($20, not $35), but they never required "at least" anything. Any donation was welcome.

It's always possible that we're just conspiracy theorists. It's always possible that all of this is actually true. I'd say the odds are a million to one. But there's still that one. But if I were you, I'd wait, and at least let "Ryan Meader" prove himself in light of all the accusations made by posters before donating. Otherwise, the other 999,999 odds say you're throwing your "at least $35" away.

One last note: for those dissing on MacOSRumors.com, save your breath. This site may be a scam, and these "rumors" may be the pure fabrication of some sick bastard's imagination, but the real rumors was a good rumor site. Their sources were real, and their predictions were as accurate as any RUMOR site's could be. I remember when I bought my 17" iMac in 2002. I had the money to buy an iMac in early July, but MOSR said there was a 17" widescreen iMac coming within a matter of weeks. I talked to a few dealers, and they said that was ridiculous. A week later, at Macworld, the 17" iMac was announced, and I ordered mine as I laughed at those dumb@$$ dealers.

The bottom line: The real MOSR was as good a rumor site as there ever was. But this is not MOSR. Don't waste your "at least $35" contributing to the scams of a clever imposter.

OH what a bunch of fucking morons. Can't u idiots see that the request for money goes to the exact same url as the one MacOSRumors.com hosted until the day it went down? How the heck could that be a scam, what a bunch of idiots you people are. and ryan meateater or whatever and rumors havent published a true rumor since the millenium. you guys must be some morons.

YOU ARE THE ONES CREATING THE RUMORS! This is, from what i can tell, the real MOSR. They said it is. They ask for $ at the SAME EXACT AMAZON HONOR SYSTEM ACCOUNT. So ...

to the moron who everyon e thinks said things so wel..;. if this were a SCAM!, HOW THE HELL IS THE SCAMMER GONNA GET THE MONEY FROM RYANS ACCOUNT?

IDIOTS! DO SOME INVESTIGATION ON YOUR OWN BEFORE YOU START GETIN ALL SOFT LIKE A SNOW CONE

 
At August 23, 2004 at 12:20 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I love how people who scream at everybody in all caps and indulge in name-calling and other sorts of thirteen-year-old behavior always feel so clever, yet always look so foolish.

To our last poster, a few tips:

Lesson #1:
>>OH what a bunch of fucking morons. Can't u idiots see that...

First, swearing makes you look like the uneducated, uncouth "moron", it's rude, and immediately guarantees that no one will take you seriously.

Lesson #2:
>>what a bunch of idiots you people are
>>you guys must be some morons
>>to the moron who everyon e
>>IDIOTS! DO SOME INVESTIGATION ON YOUR OWN BEFORE YOU START GETIN ALL SOFT LIKE A SNOW CONE

Don't do that. Name calling, especially of this magnitude, makes it clear to everyone that you are one of two things: a) a child, or even worse, b) a grown man who acts with the maturity (or lack thereof) of a child.

Lesson #3:
>>This is, from what i can tell, the real MOSR. They said it is.

Don't believe everything everyone says. And no, this is the farthest thing from the real MOSR. The writing style and level alone make that clear. And that just scratches the surface. Anyone paying attention can see that. And now we see that that was exactly the case. MacOSRumors.com is back online, and it's clearly not a continuation of any of this (especially since this continues to update). And now, we have the confession of a 16-year-old kid. (Is it you?)

Lesson #4:
>>DO SOME INVESTIGATION ON YOUR OWN BEFORE YOU START GETIN ALL SOFT LIKE A SNOW CONE

Take your own advice next time. The real MOSR, as any regular reader knows, and as is once again the case with their return, accepts donations via PayPal. And they still don't specify how much we should donate. You should have done better research before you accused us of being defficient in that area.

Lesson #5:
>>the request for money goes to the exact same url as the one MacOSRumors.com hosted until the day it went down? How the heck could that be a scam...?

I'll tell you how. MOSR doesn't use the Amazon honor system. At one point, I think they might have, but they now use PayPal. So someone registered an Amazon honor system under the "MacOSRumors" alias. Not a difficult thing to do.

Lesson #6:
>>and ryan meateater or whatever and rumors havent published a true rumor since the millenium

If you were a regular reader, rather than just a troll with too much time on his hands, you would know this not to be true. MOSR is as good a rumors site as exists in the Mac community. As far as accuracy goes, they're about as good as it gets in a business that is, by definition, an educated guessing game.

The moral of the story: In case the length and writing style of this post didn't clue you in (though, judging from your post, writing style may not be something you have any ability to judge), I am the author of the first long post, exposing this for the scam that it is (though I make no claim to originality or discovery, as others had already made that claim before me; I just spelled it out in detail). In your trolling fury, you were about as wrong as you could possibly be. This is not MOSR, the Amazon honor system account does not go to MOSR, I was not an idiot in telling the story of the scam this site's author was running, and they were not "idiots" for agreeing with me. And you failed to practice what you preach by doing any research of your own. You're clearly either a child in need of firmer discipline, or a pathetic child of a man; for your sake, I hope it's not the latter.

A couple questions for you.

First, the author of this site has confessed to being a 16 year old prankster, con artist, and troll. Is it you?

And second... do you use a PC?

Here's to the resurrection of the real MOSR, folks. Cheers.

She pulls away from him and hops up onto the edge of the hot tub, staring at him, hoping he will take the initiative.
She puts her hand slowly down her bikini to caress her wet pussy. Casey moves closer to her as she sticks her finger further into her pussy.
Before his bbs preteen link can touch her body, she pulls her soaked finger out, traces it on his bbs loli sunbbs, and slowly licks his bbc pictures lolitas clean.
He moves his head down her body, kissing her skin on his way. When he reaches her bikini,
he unties each side with his teeth and throws that piece in the hot tub as well. As he moves further down still, he kisses her stomach,
traveling down to her smooth pussy child sex slave industry. He starts by lightly kissing on the outside, all around, then penetrates her deep purple with his tongue.. slowly.
Moving in closer, he surrounds her clit with his dark russian lolita and sucks gently. With his free nymphet lolita around and his tongue circling her clit,
he slides a finger inside, fucking her faster and faster. He moves up and replaces his finger with his dick,
keeping up with the pace of her heartbeat felt through their chests.
They fuck so fast and hard that she is left with bruises and abrasions on her skin from the concrete that aren't found until the next morning.
"Damn, baby, I can't tell if I had a good time or if you kicked my ass. Maybe it was both," she said.

My sister and I love each other, but we fight constantly. We're always saying something rude about one other's hair, clothes, whatever, it doesn't matter, we quarrel. It's getting to the point were free celebrity sex clip will put in ear plugs if he's home with us for too long.
The other night, we thought Daddy might turn us over on his knee like he did when we were younger. We were in the bathroom, standing side by side. I looked over and up at my sister; I hated the fact that she was taller than me. She stands five foot seven inches tall, and I a mere five foot even. I think I also resented the fact that she was older than me. We're two years apart, she's 21 and I'm 19. We both have red hair, blue eyes, and freckles, some people have mistaken us for twins, but we're a year apart. Our bodies are different, she doesn't have much in the way of boobs, 36A, is all her cup size is, and I tease her about it all the time. Me, my boobs are a 36D. She doesn't have much in the way of hips either, very narrow she is, and I tell her she looks like a boy, which pisses her off. I got the better body entirely, I have a very shapely figure, and no one could ever mistake me for a boy. I was telling her that she needed to change her outfit, or buy clothes that fit her better. All her clothes drape o
ff of her like potato sacks; she was yelling at me, telling me that I dressed like a slut and I should be more conservative, when free childporn gallery burst through the door.
"That's enough! I want to hear no more from either one of you! You are driving me insane! You two are too old for this!"
My sister's first reaction is to get defensive and I let her go first.
"Dad, she started it!"
I looked up at Daddy sheepishly.
"No I didn't Daddy. I was just being honest. I can't help it if she can't stand to hear some criticism."
Daddy looked down at me. He knew what I was doing, but he always sided with me.
"You aren't dressed very well at all, free cross stitch patterns."
"You always side with her!"
She turned and gave me a mean look and I stuck my tongue out at her.
"Jessica! That's enough from you too."
I put my eyes down and nodded my head.
"Sorry Daddy I won't do it again."
My sister humphed my way and I moved past her. I stood on my tiptoes and kissed Daddy's cheek. "Sorry to make you angry Daddy."
He patted me on the head and smiled down.
"It's okay Darling. I just wish you two girls would get along."
"I'll try real hard Daddy."
I gave him another kiss, and as I got back behind him I stuck my tongue out at my sister again.
"Daddy! Look! Look what she's doing!"
Daddy didn't turn around.
"That's enough free digimon hentai pic! Get on out of here and go to bed!"
The bickering continued of course, until there was a break when Eliza was out with her boyfriend. I was in my room, reading and listen to music, actually enjoying the fact that she wasn't at home. I really hated fighting with her, but I couldn't ever stop myself from doing it. I heard the front door close and Eliza run up the stairs. I also heard Daddy yelling.
"Eliza, is everything alright?"
"Fine, Daddy, everything's fine!"
From the tone of her voice I knew she was okay. So, I went back to reading. I only got a few lines into the book when my door burst open and in came Eliza looking all flushed and fluttered.
"What's wrong? What happened?"
I fought with my sister a lot but I felt protective over her as well.
"Nothing. Well, okay something happened, but it wasn't wrong."
"What? You lost me somewhere in there."
"Oh Jess, it was fuckin' great!"
My eyes widened, my sister doesn't speak like that.
"Okay, what was it? C'mon you gotta tell me!"
"I did it."
I watched Eliza go to the door, check the hall, and then close the door completely.
"You did what?"
"You know!"
"No, I don't. What did you do?"
"Don't make me mad! Not tonight!"
"I'm not trying to make you mad; I don't know what the hell it is you're talking about."
"I had sex."
"Oh, that it?"
"What do you mean, is that it?"
"Well, by the way you came in here I thought maybe you'd had the shit fucked outta ya or something. Just having sex isn't anything special."
"You've had sex before?"

In the fourth quarter of this year, American cars plans to have produced 620,000 vehicles (240,000 cars and 380,000 trucks) in the U.S.and Canada.
This is 15,000 units fewer than the previously-announced plan, reflecting the temporary suspension of the Freestar model s production at the Oakville Assembly Plant in Ontario.In the first quarter 2007, the company plans to produce 750,000 vehicles (240,000 cars and 510,000 trucks).In the first quarter 2006, the company produced 876,000 vehicles (316,000 cars and 560,000 trucks).
The company had indicated earlier that first half 2007 production would be 8-12% American cars lower than the first half 2006, and says the first quarter 2007 plan is consistent with the high end of this range.
