Apple Apple doesn't have a particularly healthy relationship with the press; it has sued websites for publishing information it didn't like, and has tried to keep information under wraps that a journalist tried to uncover via the Freedom of Information Act. Now, however, it has tried to prevent The Times from publishing an article about Steve Jobs.

What I don't get is how Apple got to know about this article before publication. Or their PR chit-chat happened after publication?

Well, some news corporations notify to the stakeholders before publishing an article related to them, maybe this was the case.

And if Apple tried to block or not an article about Steve J. Why would I care, is like E! news, the least trash news to distract me the better.

Probably because the author asked info from Apple for his article. Pretty standard procedure.

Or they got tipped off by someone the author came to asking for information while doing research.

Who was it again who said Silicon Valley is a small world? ;-)

I must add that the Times article is written with a sense of humor and with insight. The author has been recollecting some standard anekdotes and combined it with insightful analyses. Well-worth the read.
