Scoble on Engadget’s misadventure

Ex-Microsoft blogger (how he must hate that sobriquet) Robert Scoble posts sympathetically about Engadget. The tech blog posted a story about Apple iPhone and OS X delays which purported to come from an official Apple corporate email circular. Sadly for the blog, the email turned out to be a fake, Apple’s PR department was slow off the mark, and the shares took a dive before the record way straightened. Still, the humility shown by Engadget does stand out – would that all misreporting was treated as seriously by the perpetrators.
