MacRumors' 2003 Rumor Rejects and Unconfirmed

Last year, MacRumors published our first Rumor Reject and Unconfirmed List. This compilation of unconfirmed and unverifiable rumors offered readers a glimpse of the tidbits that never quite made it onto's front page.

Surprisingly enough, a couple of these out-of-nowhere rumors came true in 2003. Apple-branded Presentation Software and Apple Music Sales rumors evolved into Apple's Keynote software and the iTunes Music Store, respectively, while hints of a 30" Apple Display have now graduated into a full fledged rumor over this past year.

With the addition of MacRumors' Page 2 in early 2003, most of the questionable 2003 rumors have already found their way into the limelight... however, a few unconfirmable stragglers remain:

- Apple DV Recorder (to transfer video into your Mac)
- A product called the "Apple iBook Studio Display"
- iSight Cameras built into both Apple LCDs and PowerBooks
- Dual Processor iMac in early 2004
- Dual Processor PowerBooks
- Apple Set Top Box with wireless networking, allowing the streaming of movies to your TV from your Mac or iPod via "next generation" bluetooth.

This list is published for interest's sake and should not be seen as claims or rumors from
