The Sunday Times’ Bryan Appleyard (ironic) has hacked together four pages of anecdotal innuendo about Steve Jobs and Apple while also claiming that Apple tried to quash his piece (and we do mean “piece”) by reporting, “‘We want to discourage profiles,’ an Apple PR tells me stiffly, apparently unaware she is waving a sackful of red rags at a herd of bulls. Another PR rings the editor of this magazine to try to halt publication of this piece.”
This, after digging up and re-spreading so much old manure, while sprinkling in such gems as, “My own view is that a Jobsless Apple will seek a merger with Google.”
If Apple did try to “halt publication of this piece,” could anybody really blame them for not wanting yet another hit piece to see the light of day?
