    Interesting article in today's business section of the Los Angeles Times.

    It's still too early to tell which way Apple is leaning, but they seemed quite eager to settle those lawsuits against those developers/students who illegally posted Tiger ASAP. Two down and one left in that particular case.

    Here's the link for those who want to read the whole story. It will be good for about a week.

    I think a company is entitled to determine what it considers a trade secret, not some media outlet. if they feel it was important, and they do, then that's fine. And if coke was going to come out with a new product and it got leaked to the media weeks or months before it came out, you can bet they'd be rightfully pissed even if it wasn't the actual formula that was leaked.

    And I think they missed the point. They didn't name the websites as defendents because they didn't do anything wrong. It was the sources that did and apple supeanoed to get the name of the sources who broke their NDA's. I mean, that's pretty basic.
