    i really dont see what the big deal is what all of these things, apple is a company and it is just protecting itself, big deal

    the ipod tax is taken totally out of line by Cnet
    trade secrets are trade secrets, apple has a right to know who the leak is, obviously someone breeched their NDA
    some one copied their product, blatantly, including name, they have a right to shut them down


    get a grip of reality Cnet

    1. She's just pissed off because Microsoft is the one always getting their pants sued off (and usually losing).

    2. The iPod Super Shuffle was a PR stunt.

    3. Apple could not have been the only reason Motorola did not release a phone - heck, Steve showed a prototype at Macworld. :confused:

    4. The jury is still out on whether Apple's suit against Think Secret is a good thing.

    What do you expect from CSlop?

    Am I the only one who doesn't think C-Net is anti-Apple? Sure, they don't always give some of the Apple products the best ratings possible, but they still have some good things to say about our favorite little fruit.

    This article isn't quite as bad as previous C|Net articles, IMO. There's more fact in this one and less bias - that doesn't mean the bias is completely gone. We all have to deal with selective journalism - this article represents selective journalism at its finest.

    Agree, I mean they saw the PSP as an iPod killer.

    LOL they cite Jack Campbell (the DV Forge/MacMice guy) as a source. GOOD JOB C|Net! Way to pick someone who is credible and well-liked!

    Cnet and news.com have only one function in life, to spew F.U.D. on Apple and plug the latest cr@p from Microsoft.

    Anyone know who owns these guys - in any case it's pretty obvious who's paying most of the advertising bills, and its not Apple.
