Gizmodo Banned from Apple WWDC

recoiledsnake (879048) writes | more than 4 years ago


recoiledsnake (879048) writes "Gizmodo is reporting that Apple has refused to answer its request to attend the company's big Worldwide Developers Conference keynote this Monday. Apple’s move to ban Gizmodo seems a direct repercussion of Apple’s prototype leak by Gizmodo and subsequent actions of Apple to get the prototype back. Meanwhile, Gizmodo said that it would resort to a liveblog to cover the event in case of the ban. This comes a few days after San Mateo County authorities announced that a "special master" had been appointed to assist in the search of Gizmodo editor Jason Chen's belongings: goods seized as part of a police investigation into the disappearance (and Gizmodo acquisition) of one of Apple's prototype iPhones. It's the very device that's rumored to be announced at the Monday keynote."

On one hand this sucks because I enjoy the Gizmodo live blog, but on the other hand it's hardly surprising that Apple wouldn't respond given that Giz outed their new phone 3 months early. If you rained on my parade I wouldn't invite you to my party either.
