Did Time Bend To Apple's Will?

from the who-is-in-whose-pocket? dept

An article in Salon about the new iMac brings up the question that was discussed here as well as many other places. Time Canada let the new iMac secret slip last night a bit early. They later pulled it down, and waited until mid-day (after Jobs’ speech) to put it back online. However, Time always publishes this week’s issue on their website on Sunday night. So, did Apple get Time Warner to specifically delay publishing the issue until after the speech? It certainly looks like they did. That seems to raise some questions about the integrity of Time magazine… They’re basically admitting that they’re a marketing device for the new iMac rather than a news magazine.
