Cassandra: Say What? - People Never Learn about making Apple Predictions

I just linked to a piece - from Chris Smith of BGR - on the Yahoo! news site which takes a rumour out of Digitimes (not noted for 100% accuracy when it comes to Apple) about the iPhone 6 and builds it up into a massive production of super sales, expanded shipments and an earlier launch date than had been anticipated. Anticipated by whom is not mentioned.

iPhone rumours Let us cast our minds back to the same time last year when similar rumours began about the imminent launch of the iPhone 5S (iPhone 5s as it became) or iPhone and a cheap iPhone.

That iPhone was to be released in April, May, June, July or August, depending on which expert one read. In the end, they were almost all wrong.

The only part of this report that I might buy into is the A8 chip: a logical progression, one might think; but not as yet confirmed. That confirmation will only happen when Apple announces the new device, say in April, May, June or July. . . .

My original link for the item was the excellent Kate MacKenzie on PixoBebo.
