    or.... he purposely confirmed it, and now has generated news coverage for something that I otherwise had not heard of...

    I think this dude's accidental video confirmation of a digg app is a bigger story than the release of a digg app will be.

    This "leak" was intentional. No doubt about it.

    Seriously? I don't know. People who use digg and an iPhone I guess. I don't use either :D. So, not me.

    I wonder how many people are going to Digg this thread. :D

    When the reporter said "I saw the digg app on your iPhone," Kevin then had two options. He could have said "Oh, that wasn't a Digg App, it was ____." But, instead he decided to confirm it. He easily could have responded either way. The thing is, from an advertising and publicity standpoint, what he did was very beneficial to getting the world out to consumers that the new iPhone app is coming. It's free advertising.

    Really, who cares? I mean someone cares, but all a Digg app will do is slightly optimize your use of Digg vs. broswer interface. Whoop-de-doo. :rolleyes:

    They already leaked this info during the digg town hall almost a month ago. Kevin said they were waiting to dev a digg app until they finished there API.

    I have a digg app.
    No one cares.
    Kevin Rose never "accidentally" leaks anything.

    I don't understand how this is big news..... So what if there is a Digg iPhone app. No one actually cares.
