Apple bullies bloggers for reporting on Windows Mobile skin

Posted on Monday, January 15 2007 @ 03:07:49 CET by

TechCrunch reports Apple send legal letters to several bloggers who simply reported on the fact that someone created a skin for Windows Mobile smartphones to make the interface look like the iPhone's UI.
Blogger Paul O’Brien simply linked to this download page and included a screenshot of the user interface and also received a cease & desist letter from Apple’s lawyers.

I think this is all complete nonsense. If Apple wants to go after the guy that made the Windows Mobile skin that looks like the iPhone, fine. But to bully bloggers who are simply reporting on this is another matter.

More on this story at TechMeme. As far as I can tell, the software is no longer available anywhere for download.
