Legal A few days ago, technology blog Valleywag's launched its Apple Tablet Scavenger Hunt, a sort-of contest in which people with evidence of the existence of Apple's much-rumoured tablet could win large sums of money. Apple apparently wasn't amused, as the company resorted to its usual tactic whenever it doesn't like something in the press: litigation, litigation, litigation.

...and out comes the apple apologists.

They're right? about what? that people aren't allowed to speculate on coming products?
it's the law? Seriously? The law says I can't speculate about apples product or ask for proof of their existance? hmmm..lI could almost swear there's another real law in effect here and you might have heard of it. it's called freedom of speech and it's quite well known.
just because a laywer sends you an email it doesn't mean what he wants is legal or even have anything to do with the law.

this also gets tired, that no one is allowed to put out their own opinion of apple as if it's positive in anyway then they are an apologist.

No one is saying they can't speculate what apple might be coming out with, what they are saying is that it's wrong to offer cash prizes to people who break a signed contract with apple (NDA).
