While we understand the need to have things like this at the ready, we've gotta side with Apple on this one.
Everyone, including us, was eager to hear what Steve Jobs was going to announce next for the Apple line of products and operating systems.
Well, almost everyone. The folks over at AP somehow decided that it was the proper time to start calling around to major sources for new quotes to go on Steve's newly updated obituary — before it was even known if he'd be making the keynote speech because he'd been on medical leave.
Awesomely enough, he was there. While he looked thinner than usual, he was in good spirits and looked to be in good health as well.
When Apple caught wind of AP doing this, they were not happy at all. They even went so far as to contact the same sources as AP and ask them not to give any quotes or help AP in any way!
The good thing is that most of them had refused anyway, regardless of being asked.
Like we said — we get that AP has a job to do, but it seems like the wrong time. Especially right before a major event with everyone watching.
Do U think it was okay for them to do this??
