    Rumor sites, yawn. I don't see how they benefit the Mac community other than providing cheap, it-gets-old-quick entertainment.

    MacNN (et.al.) can quickly become redundantly noisy, reminding me of this unforgettable comment someone made while observing an abnormally large group of people fussing over something which clearly didn't deserve so much attention:

    How many monkeys does it take to f*ck a football?

    Visual imagery enhances its impact.

    Oh, and for the heavy dung-hurling there's always MacDailyNews.

    Well if Apple bothers to sue them again... I assume they are correct again 8)

  10. I wonder what 16X DL DVD recorder it is? I have a Pioneer 109. It would be nice to have native drivers for it in Tiger, but I haven't heard from anyone yet if they're there. Will this increase (or not effect) the likelyhood of iDVD 5 burning 8G projects?

    I found the answer today in the new G5 specs:

    "Double-layer Drive

    The 16x SuperDrive built into every dual-processor Power Mac G5 now supports double-layer (DVD+R DL) discs. While single-layer DVD-R discs hold up to 4.7GB of data, double-layer discs have two layers of data, allowing the SuperDrive laser to read and write on either layer, almost doubling the storage to 8.5GB. Using iDVD included on every Power Mac G5 or DVD Studio Pro, you can author discs with over three hours of MPEG-2 video on one DVD+R DL disc. If you work with high-definition video, use the SuperDrive to burn double-layer discs with more room for high-bit-rate H.264 video."

    I havene't tried an 8G project in iDVD, so I'm not sure if Tiger is required to do this. But one of the new G5's doesn't ship with Tiger and Apple still makes this claim for it. Still no idea which 16X drive it is.
