It is fascinating to behold the panicking media at the moment. They’ve now taken to posting genuine stories about a currently unannounced device. Only this morning I was flicking through smiling at the unabashed panic.
The major thrust is that since Apple has not yet sent out invites to an announcement keynote, they can’t benefit from all the click-throughs and page impression traffic. The next best thing is to rehash what you wrote yesterday quoting some analyst and general industry shenanigans, give it a headline like ‘iPad Mini Launch Date Mystery’ and boom, you’ve got a lot of the traffic you were hoping for. More at MIR.
Nice one Ewan. This desperate rush to put up 'any' rumour just to get traffic is sad and at times overshadows the best of some websites.
