This BBC story about eight newspapers “backing” the “Apple bloggers” (ThinkSecret, et al) is so stupid. No judge – or right-minded person, for that matter – would equate a case of corporate whistleblowing with leaking trade secrets. One is in the public interest. One is not. The public may be interested in knowing Apple’s every move – I know I am – but to compare it with Watergate is a bit much, I think.
