Apple Since interesting news that I'm actually knowledgeable about is still a little hard to come by, I have to work a little harder. This is something interesting to discuss: John Gruber, rather famous Apple blogger, is now arguing that Apple is in fact not fighting the jailbreaking community. Wait, what?

Any form of discussion with him about anything apple(sic) should be done purely for amusement purpose.

Actually, there's a more valid reason: he is very good at predicting trends in Apple's areas of expertise, as well as predicting what Apple are going to do next. His "Claim Chowder" posts and their sources are very interesting to read for a point of comparison.

I LOLed at trends. Given his popularity within Apple people, he must be having contacts from Apple PR people. He is afterall an unofficial Apple PR spokesperson who will defend whatever Apple does (even if Steve Jobs shot on your face).

What Apple is going to do next? For Apple it is a very good chance to leak information to Gruber, so that it can be leaked in a controller manner and hype can be built properly.
