New Bill Grants Fed Power to Shut Down the Web (Switched)

Jun 18th 2010 9:19PM Not Obama, Liberman wants to be able to shut it down so people can stop looking up on how bad Liberman is.

Investigation moves forward in Gizmodo iPhone leak case (TUAW.com)

Jun 3rd 2010 7:30PM @DaveR Excellent points,

But just for logical reasoning, had Jason not taken the offer like the others, the iphone holders would of done something with it eventually, most likely caught by the police , regardless of the leak, the fate of the employee would of been set as soon as he lost it.

Jun 3rd 2010 7:04PM In China it is (Foxconn joke , really bad of me I know :( )

And no way, he's bound to be fired, doesn't matter what company or whatever in this case.

What about the middle man however? If Jason does get charged, I'd like to see this man go with him at least. (Is there any confirmation on the gender?)

Jun 3rd 2010 6:56PM @Bill I can agree, what he did was illegal, but check my comment on page 2,

There should be more people in this case other than Jason, he is being used as a scapegoat here so that Apple can send a warning to all other journalists.

The employee who let it get stolen so carelessly?

The guy who actually stole it and sold it?

Irrelevant to the matter?

Jun 3rd 2010 6:50PM I'd also like to point out that while Jason is the scapegoat here, there are at least 3 people connected to this case, the employee, the seller to Gawker Media, and Jason.

Why is the employee not on the table here? Jason is just in the spotlight here , merely as a warning to any possible cases where this happens again. Regardless of whether or not he has the law technically on his side, that doesn't make the story right.

Jun 3rd 2010 6:46PM Yes, laws, not act, that was my bad.

Anyway, Apple will always bounce back, look at how well the iPad did recently. ;)
I do not support the destruction of Jason's life, hasn't Foxconn done enough of that under Apple's name?

Before I have everyone freak out , yes, I know other companies use Foxconn, no one else causes this much trouble though.

Jun 3rd 2010 6:43PM Lose tech cred for what? Seeing a prototype of a hugely saught after device and go...Nope. Not today bro. And come on, Apple Stock goes up and down all the time, it'll go back up , this isn't the end of the world.

Jun 3rd 2010 6:36PM Okay, let me ask a question to all the people supporting his case, do you feel Apple was personally hurt by this? No?

The new iPhone will sell just as good as anything else they made, all of you Apple nerds should rejoice that this one teeny tiny time, there was a mistake in security and you got to see a brand new product out in the open months before release!

Are you personally upset that when your cult leader announces it it won't be the same? Well guess what? There will be plenty more opportunities to go "What could the latest revolution be?!" It's not like they wait more than a year before giving you new toys.

But instead, you'd rather see a journalist lose his savings over being a journalist, because big bad Steve hired a botched employee.
