But Think Secret is getting hammered because it's not part of a wealthy media conglomerate that buys ink by the barrel.Those of you who think, "Surely Apple can't get away with this at the end of the day" on First Amendment grounds or the like ought to read this commentary.
What would happen if Apple employees sent their secrets to me, and I made them the subject of next week's column? Would Apple sue The Boston Globe? We should be so lucky. No, Apple decided to tee off on a 19-year-old kid, hoping to make an example of him. It's a bonehead play from a company that's cultivated a warm and friendly image.
