Finally we can draw a line under the Gizmodo iPhone 4 affair

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 7:13 pm

Well, two final acts in the saga: First, Gizmodo will not be prosecuted. Second, although the two persons who sold the iPhone4 to Gizmodo is guity of the crime, they got off lightly since there is no jail time and the fact that the fine imposed on them won’t even crawl back the money Gizmodo paid them.

One thing: The prosecutor is bitter over the whole affair. There is no need for him to mention the bad blood between Gizmodo and Apple, but he had chosen to mention it. In my opinion the law (which include the prosecutor) is caught between a rock and a hard place. They were the one whose outcome is definitely not what they would want whichever way they choose the play it. The other parties, i.e. Apple, Gizmodo and the two persons, got what they wanted.
