Frankly speaking:
Isn't this like the dog licking its own balls?

Reporters confirming the URLs were leaked to websites. You mean someone didn't brute-force the Apple download site? That's real journalism, Lou.

Legion of Bad Ideas:
A team of psychics didn't discover the URL and provide it to macrumors?

How shocking.

Gruber the Booger:
>That person should be ashamed of themselves,

Because they didn't leak it to Gruber the super duper pooper scooper?

Gruber would have killed for this scoop.

>and should be very worried when their phone next rings.

Gruber writes like shit on a bathroom stall. He should be ashamed of structuring that sentence.

Also why should 'they' be worried? Sounds like Gruber is making threats his non-source birdie already cashed.

And he mentioned D22 again. How many more times do we need Gruber to mention D22?

God he is so cool with his D22.

Gruber the Booger:
>I wish I could say more about how I know what I know

Searching Fuck Fuck Go and hitting all the websites like any toothless mouth-breathing moron?

It's not that Gruber wishes he could say more about what he knows.

It's that he is embarrassed he didn't previously know what he now knows.

Because he didn't get the scoop.

D22 everybody!

Apple Corps:
I would kill to work at Apple, and this r-word nukes a huge product launch? Jeez, just quit your job if you don't like it.

And Gruber never would have published this if it had been emailed to him. The reason it went to MacRumors and 9to5 is because they don't worship Apple the same way John does. John genuinely loves the magic of a product launch, and would preserve that at all cost. I would too, frankly.

I hope this disgruntled leaker gets fired, HARD. Then sued.

"Prominent Apple blogger John Grubber..."

The Daily Mail get it.

Grubhub:
There you have it, folks. Confirmation that Daring Fireball is not a place to find scoops aka "spoilers" on Apple — because it'd be shameful of anyone to leak information to John. It's a fan blog where you can watch John capitalize on other people's hard work while trashing them simultaneously. Keep your ad blockers on when visiting this one.
