    Why is a News Site...

    Quoting a rumor site? I love Appleinsider. They are almost always right, but it IS a rumor site. Not sure why MacNN is quoting it as a legitimate news source.

    got your NDA on?

    umm... is someone violating their NDA?!? the reason you're under NDA is so that details like this don't get leaked to competitors months before a product ships.
