On Wednesday, Valleywag put up an article where they offered up to $100,000 for evidence of the much rumored Apple Tablet, and it looks like Apple weren’t to happy about it as Valleywag’s parent company Gawker, who also own Gizmodo and a number of other high end websites, have received a letter from Apple’s lawyers.
Gawker received a letter from Attorney Michael C. Spillner of Silicon Valley firm Orrick, Herrington and Suttcliffe, the letter said the following.
“I am writing on behalf of Apple regarding the notices on Gawker.com and Valleywag.com Web sites that Gawker Media will pay someone a financial reward for sending you photos, video, or a sample of an unannounced and highly confidential Apple product.”
Historically when Apple has sent a letter from its lawyers in the past, the Apple product concerned has existed, so could this be confirmation of the much rumored Apple tablet.
I guess we will just have to wait and see until January the 27th, when we hope Apple will finally reveal their Tablet, and this will put a stop to the endless rumors.
