Jason and the whinernauts: I’m on record implying Apple is rotten to the core for suing a blogger, but still, why would Steve Jobs give a rat’s ass whether or not Jason Calacanis shuts down his “unofficial” Apple weblog. You want unofficial Apple weblogging? Then subscribe to the RSS feed of everything tagged Apple on all del.icio.us sites, and you’ll learn what “conversational media” is really about and be able to start your own unofficial Apple weblog.
I mean, really, if Bill Gates doesn’t, care about Jason Calacanis’s weblogs, why should Jobs? (I’m sorry, I almost said something overly snark-infested.)
Bottom line: Apple is stupid for suing Think Secret and Jason’s letter is a transparent stunt to get linked to…and it’s working, I suppose.
Update: Ouch. Felix Salmon shears Jason’s fleece oh so much better than the two-bit cuts in my post. Among his golden barbs: “ThinkSecret gets about 2.7 million pageviews per day, while tuaw.com gets, well, nothing, really.” (via: Jeff Jarvis at BuzzMachine.com)
