Apple’s corporate doublespeak completely blows me away. Example: CEO Steve Jobs said he plans to continue his litigation of the independent online media (including this site) all the way to the Supreme Court… “No one has the right to publish confidential information just because they can.” (Searchblog)
But when questioned about his decision to pull Wiley books from the bookshelves in Apple Stores after the company published iCon Steve Jobs: The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business (US$16.47 at Amazon.com), he commented “I didn’t want to do business with them,” but added: “People can publish whatever they want to publish.” (Macworld UK)
