The sources in the original stories are at least identified as being in the supply chain. The use of anonymous sources is common in journalism and doesn't mean a story is unreliable.
I think a story like this that has been independently confirmed (by another report with sources) has a substantial amount of credibility. In a case like this, the best way to refute the claims is for Apple to come right out and say the stories are wrong.
So, Harry, regarding the hypothetical story, would you also treat that story regarding increased
screen orders with caution? Would you tend to disbelieve it?
