Harry McCracken for Time.com:
But the thing is, Digitimes isn’t just wrong some of the time. When it comes to the big Apple stories, it’s wrong most of the time. Sometimes wildly so. It’s reported that its sources had said that Apple was going to release MacBooks with AMD processors, iMacs with touch screens, iPhones with built-in projectors and iPads with OLED displays. Those products, and others mentioned in Digitimes articles, never showed up.
McCracken looked at 25 Digitimes predictions about Apple. Sixteen of them turned out to be wildly off base.
I completely agree with Harry’s assessment: journalists writing about Apple need to take a much more critical view of what Digitimes says until it’s independently verified.
