How's everyone enjoying their Android 4.4?
Oh, that's right. CNET, the source of this rumor, tricked most publications with their false confidence. But that's not what annoys me the most.
What really grinds my gears is their original title, which they changed after everyone was done sourcing them more than a full day later.
Original story, published October 10th, which mentions rumors
in the body but definitively states that both the Nexus 5 and KitKat are set for October 15th: Google Nexus 5 and Android KitKat set for 15 October http://web.archive.org/web/20131010110916/http://crave.cnet.co.uk/mobiles/google-nexus-5-and-android-kitkat-set-for-15-october-50012457/
. This story tricked most everyone who only read the headline, including even +Marques Brownlee
, who would never otherwise post a rumor as a fact.
The current story, updated on October 11th or 12th, conveniently adding "Report:" to the title in an attempt to shift the blame to the fact that it was and has always, in fact, been a rumor: http://crave.cnet.co.uk/mobiles/report-google-nexus-5-and-android-kitkat-set-for-15-october-50012457/
Great reporting there, +CNET
