This just proves what I've been saying all along.As a condition to be "exclusively" invited to their press event, Apple asks for favorable reviews and hype over its products.
The more hype and coverage you generate with the word "apple" in your tags, the more likely you will be awarded a spot to gain access.
No one would dare say a bad thing about Apple now because they wield that heavy stick. Then again, that isnt quite surprising as they are bullies after all.Conflict of interest and little dose of moral hazard at hand folks.
All those who say otherwise are in denial.
If my statements were NOT true, then Apple would've continued to invite NY Times to their event.
But, after this, that isn't so.
Whats funny is that, all of the media companies after the "bad presses" regarding antenna gate issues, iPhone 4 design release and now the workplace issues are ALL based on facts.
Apple doesn't want to ruin its perfectly molded image of its self as this prevailing white knight that everyone (especially in this neck of the woods) thinks the company is.
In short, it didn't want to face the truth. What happened after the aftermath of all three instances? Rubber covers were issued to consumers for the antenna gate, more strict
security policies were in place to prevent further leaks and increased scrutiny on its third party OEM's. None of this would've happened if the stuff that was reported were
The posts that I expect after this will determine who is truly delusional and those who are rational.
Have at it people.

Because it reflects Apple in a negative way = "bad journalism"?
So you think the practices that Apple's third party OEM's are doing are perfectly legal and okay?
That there is nothing immoral about it?
How about I call you having bad citizenship?
If you see something wrong, you go and fix it.
That is how civilizations expect of its citizens.
Those who turn a blind eye to that in the name of personal gain don't have to right to be called citizens.
Now in the face of globalization, we arent just citizens of certain countries of a "global" citizen now.
We all should act like one.
