We’ll have more on Gizmodo’s hipocracy in outing the Apple engineer who left his iPhone 4G at a bar, but quickly wanted to direct your attention to this bullshit post from Gizmodo editor Brian Lam advising Gray Powell to keep his head up.
Hey man, I know things seem really tough right now. We had mixed feelings about writing the story of how you lost the prototype, but the story is fascinating. And tragic, which makes it human. And our sin is that we cannot resist a good story. Especially one that is human, and not merely about a gadget—that’s something that rarely comes out of Apple anymore. But hopefully you take these hard times and turn things around. We all make mistakes. Yours was just public. Tomorrow’s another day. We will all be cheering for you.
So first Gizmodo publishes his name, even though a generic “Apple Software Engineer” would have sufficed, and then Lam writes this fake-ass apology/we-hope-you’re-doing-well blurb on Gizmodo.
What a dick.
