My original email:
To Gizmodo and the author of whom wrote all iphone related articles regarding "Gray Powell"
You're a douche.
Non-douche reader who wouldn't put the poor guy's name all over the internet world. Gizmodo = new low in technical blogs.
Maybe I should relook at the whole scenario again. I was douche trigger happy.Hello,
Powell is now under the public eye, which will protect him against
Apple firing him (We believe he's still employed and Apple didn't fire
him when they found out, a month ago. He's a valuable engineer). It's
embarrassing, yes, but it's like insurance. If Apple fires him, they
will get a huge PR backslash.
But let's not forget: 1) He lost one of the most valuable gadgets in
the world. And 2) the storyand his namewas going to be reported by
other media. We had the facts before anyone else. It was our job to
report on it.
You should look at the bigger picture..
