The iPhone 4 fiasco

I rarely talk about topic with people, but my conscience is clear, I’m over the embarrassment, and life’s too short for some of the guilt I was placing upon myself about it... Actually nothing happened to them (Gizmodo). Jason Chen got his door knocked down during a police raid, but no criminal or civil charges were filed. My friend and I were the ones that took the heat. From my perspective Gizmodo took advantage of me.

A good read that sheds some light on the not so talked about side of technology and technology journalism. I blame Gizmodo for the entire fiasco, nowadays people think they can do anything for few more page views and hits. While it is perfectly fine to carry on with a scoop that you got your hands on exclusively, the whole incident feels like it was a result of immature thinking and amateur journalism by Gizmodo. You certainly cannot blame a 21 year trying to make a little more money on the side, that too in this economy!
