The Appalling Reaction to the Apple iPhone Leak

,----[ Quote ]
| Instead, fearful of being blackballed and
| missing the big story, and afraid of being
| swarm attacked by the legions of Apple
| fanatics who act as unpaid flacks to anyone
| who dares to challenge the perfection of
| the company or the divinity of its founder
| -- and most of all, not having the muscle
| of the old-time media empires -- today's
| press largely has turned into the company's
| full-time lapdog and lickspittle. Some
| well-known reporters have built entire
| careers out of being Apple promoters -- and
| thus being given insider access.
|
| The latest word is that Chen and Gizmodo
| have lawyered up and are considering suing
| the police. Good. And they should go after
| REACT as well, to the point that it is
| disbanded and replaced by another entity
| that isn't a tool of big corporations.
|
| Meanwhile, those Apple fanatics out there
| (including a few big-name bloggers) that
| are defending this assault on liberty
| should be deeply ashamed of themselves for
| being willing to trade the First Amendment
| for a few cool techno-baubles.

,----[ Quote ]
| In early 2007 he seemed none too pleased

| other things.

Nokia takes Apple to court, again

,----[ Quote ]

| infringements. This time it's in Wisconsin,
| presumably for variety.
