Jobs On Suing Bloggers

Wired co-founder John Battelle's blog has an entry Jobs On Suing Bloggers. Jobs is quoted as being prepared to take this "unqualified journalist" issue to the Supreme Court if necessary. Very odd, and very difficult to uphold in a court of law, I would have thought. I've yet to come across a single respected "qualified journalist" that has anything positive to say about Apple's weird posturing.

Jobs is also quoted saying the reason he pulled all of Wiley's publications from Apple stores is because "I didn't want to do business with them". Which doesn't tell us much and is odd since Wiley has some of the highest selling Mac related books on the market. It is also counter-productive since iCon is one of the biggest selling computer-related books this year.
