To that end, Spillner cites California law prohibiting the inducement of disclosure of trade secrets, putting Gawker Media "on notice" that the information it is seeking to obtain is a trade secret and thus disclosure of such information would violate California law. In addition to the demand that Gawker Media end the competition, Apple also requests that Gawker turn over any confidential materials it may have received or may yet receive and refrain from publishing or sharing them.As your offer acknowledges, Apple has maintained the types of information and things you are soliciting -- "how it'll work, its size, the name, the software", as well as any possible details about the product's appearance, features, and physical samples -- in strict confidence. Anyone who might have access to such information would be bound under the strictest contractual obligations not to disclose the information to third parties.
LOL. Who was it that said yesterday "An Apple lawsuit would be the best evidence that the Tablet existed"? I think they win a prize.It has also named Spillner the first "winner" of the contest for offering "the most concrete evidence yet" that an Apple tablet is under development.
Forget genius, he'd be omnipotent, controlling companies and people which neither he nor his company have anything to do with.I almost wonder sometimes if this is all hype internally being created by Steve Jobs.
It would be a genius move, in my opinion.
