The news that the new 2010 iPhone prototype had been stolen and then placed on the Internet for the world to see has certainly had an impact — not only on Apple but the public as well. If you wonder what that impact has been, then just read the D8 interview with Steve Jobs.
According to Reuters, The Apple CEO does not have any time for blogs, saying that they are not legitimate journalism outlets. He is either venting his frustration out on a certain site or he would much rather read news from such sites like New York Times, WSJ and the Washington Post.
We reported in a recent post that Steve Jobs was advised to drop the ongoing case against Gizmodo and its owners, but he said that he would “rather quit” than let it slide about a blogger buying “stolen property”
Do you think Jobs is right to pursue the matter, or should he let it slide? We can see his point and it would be a warning to others if this were to happen again. Although I do feel that Apple should just let it go — they have certainly got a great amount of free press on the new 2010 iPhone.
On that subject, do you think that this free press will help to sell more iPhone’s in 2010?
