Apple Suing Anonymous Product Info Leakers

from the there-they-go-again dept

Steve Jobs is someone who takes his surprise product launches seriously. In fact, it was a bit surprising yesterday when an Apple representative gave much more info than usual concerning Apple’s work in the mobile phone space (though, this may have been misinterpreted by many who are talking it up today). It’s completely out of character. What’s much more in character, is sending the pack of lawyers after anyone who dares to break the embargo on information, and today Apple sued some unnamed people for releasing info about their products prior to launch. Are they going to sue their own VP in charge of products who made the mobile phone slip?
