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.

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).

Wrong != against the law.

Although that is very true, it is against contract law to offer an incentive to one party of a contract with the specific intend of getting them to break that contract. Obviously that kind of outcome can only ever be tried as a civil case, unless we are talking about government secrets in wish case it become espionage and/or treason.
