Remember Nicholas Ciarelli, the precocious tween who started a successful Apple rumor blog only to have it shuttered by the company's legal team? He's now posting on the DailyBeast, and he's got some interesting things to say about his favorite plaintiff: namely that since the negative PR resulting from Ciarelli's case, Apple seems to have realized the buzz-building value of early leaks and non-response to rumors. Nicholas might still be pretty young, but he's also still right. It's definitely worth a read. [DailyBeast]
I can only imagine a more Heinlein-esque atmosphere at Apple when leakages are cracked down upon.
