MacRumors.com is a website that aggregates Mac and Apple related news, rumors, and reports. The site was launched in 2000, and is owned by Arnold Kim. By consolidating reports and cross-referencing claims, MacRumors attempts to keep track of the rumor community. The tagline of MacRumors is "News and Rumors You Care About." The website is updated daily with new rumors.
MacRumors is also home to one of the largest Mac-focused forum sites, with over 400,000 members and over 10,000,000 forum posts as of May 2010. Users can find support for many Apple-related issues, as well as talk to other Mac users about other community and industry related issues.
In addition to providing rumors, news, and an active forum, MacRumors also serves as one of the most prominent sites for broadcasting live coverage of Apple announcements via MacRumorsLive.com.
The site has become increasingly popular since the introduction of the iPhone in 2007 and increasingly with the debut of the iPad in 2010, although has been criticized in reporting iPod and iPhone related stories when the site is named after the 'Mac' side of Apple. As a result, the URL "Applerumors.com" forwards to MacRumors.com.
