This is the great tear down article that Gizmodo went ahead and posted AFTER Steve Jobs' call. And again, I never said this was the first article posted. This is what I was talking about all along.
As I said, Jobs made a call and Gizmodo subsequently posted an article (no, not the first). In my previous post I acknowledged that there were multiple Gizmodo articles and that the one I was referring to was not the first. I even gave you the date of the article to which I referred, but you stopped on the date you wanted.
You know, if you spent less time being snarky and punching irrelevant holes in other people's arguments (e.g. Lam not Chen, and there were some articles prior to Jobs' call) communication would go a lot more smoothly.
Let me save him the trouble of responding:
The pictures on the 19th, at least one of them, show they had already disassembled the phone on the 19th. It's shown in the enlargeable photo of the ribbon cable.
I will admit what I am going to state next was wrong of them, and may be the item that sinks Gizmodo, but the only thing I can surmise is that they had a bunch of photos of a disassembled phone that they hadn't run yet, already planning to run them the next day whether they heard from apple or not, so they said what the hell, go with it, run the story anyway.
It was dumb, but it's what they did. Either way, they had already disassembled the phone BEFORE SJ had called, not after. They just elected to run the story after, though too be honest they shouldn't have.
In the end, you are wrong. The phone was disassembled BEFORE the call, not after.
The pictures were run AFTER.
This cannot be disputed no matter how much you try. The proof is the same stories you have referenced, though, AGAIN, you are electing to edit to your own purposes. I
will point out ALL the evidence, even if it damns Gizmodo.
