Looking for the new camera rumours…
Very much ‘in development’
I’ve maintained a few rumour pages on this site for longer than the xxxrumors.com sites have been around, but I’ve always had a slightly ambivalent attitude towards keeping the pages going.
On one hand, I’d much rather the site was known for the articles [...]
Overnight, our web site was hacked – we think it’s all back to normal now, but are still investigating

When you add content over a period of several years it’s easy for the style to [...]
Two emails this morning reminded me of why I keep the site running and what you sometimes have to deal with.
