Apple bans Bloomberg from iPad event as payback for spy chip story
 

 
image

Apple and Amazon are already starting to make retaliatory moves on Bloomberg for its claims that the two companies’ servers were hacked by China.

AdvertisementAmazon pulled its Q4 ads from Bloomberg’s website, cutting off significant ad revenue. Meanwhile, Apple has decided to give Bloomberg the old GizmodoV treatment by banning the company from its big fall event.


Bloomberg usually attends all of Apple’s keynotes and has been given numerous exclusive interviews. Now the company will just have to watch the keynote like everybody else.

Buzzfeed reports that Bloomberg was not invited to Apple’s fall event. Apple declined to comment but the move is obviously a diss for not retracting the spy chip story.

How long Bloomberg’s event banishment will last is a good question. After Gizmodo published images of a leaked iPhone 4 they were banned from the keynotes for years. The site was only recently invited back to keynotes.

Apple CEO Tim Cook and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos have both called on Bloomberg to retract their story. Multiple security experts, the NSA and Homeland Security have all said that there is no evidence to support Bloomberg’s claim that spy chips were installed on the servers. Bloomberg has continued to standby the report saying it came from over a year of research and multiple sources.

I read the Bloomberg story and it sounds legit - just that both Apple and Amazon were unaware of the chips as they were using third party contractors.

The chip is also allegedly really hard to spot so it makes sense that they would counter the story. But this is different than leaked iPhone pics, it really was a good piece of investigative journalism.

apple has the mentality that they can do no wrong in an facet of their business...so admitting this would be impossible. look how long and through so many excuses it took them to admit the battery issue?

This is a typical case of Party A being mad because they didn't know sh*t, and Party B DID know.

Don't get mad at Party B because you stupid... go up your intelligence game Apple
