The site Macrumors - "does rumors right" - in my opinion.
Here' is the latest:
"According to the news site, the following url reference appeared on Apple's Powerbook pages:
The reference was in an IMG tag, speculated to be a counter for Apple's various individual web pages. The reference was changed to apple_g4_powerbook shortly after the publishing of the story."
Now, they didn't steal, they didn't coerce, they didn't solicit with a phone number for people to break Non Disclosure agreements. Plain and Simple - they are speculating because of some HTML code euncovered on Apple's website.
Macrumors also often posts patent information found at the USPTO.COM website ... again - great rumormongering.
