Apple wins lawsuit with Think Secret- we all lose

Rotten_appleWe know how serious Apple protects their upcoming releases and have always been aggressive in going after those who divulge what they feel is too much information about unannounced products.  Earlier this year they sued the long-running Apple rumor site Think Secret for divulging such advance information.  Think Secret, a site that has been in existence since 1999, announced recently that they have settled the suit with Apple and will no longer be publishing.  That’s right, a popular Apple rumor fan site has been shut down by the lawyers in Cupertino for fanning the fanboy flames for Apple.  We all lose in this scenario, what the hell is Apple thinking?
