Gawker’s Tablet Bounty Hunt Pounced on By Apple Lawyers
Anyone who didn’t see this coming, including the folks at Gawker Media, has to be considered naive at best. As we reported yesterday, Gawker Media offered a bounty for pictures, video, and info of the Apple Tablet via ValleyWag. It didn’t take Apple’s lawyers long to issue a cease and desist, which they did. They also demanded that any pictures Gawker receives be turned over to them. What a circus.

Didn’t Apple just prove it exists? They wouldn’t sick lawyers on vaporware. Or, maybe they did just to mess with the sellers of actual existing products?
Also, are you guys working on the site? Doesn’t always come up on first request, long delays on links such a posting a comment. I have not even tried the forum recently because of those same issues.
