Apple Supplier Now Suing a Blog Over Leaked iPad 3 Parts

Last summer I was among the many blogs that posted about a cable that was rumored to come from the (still not yet released) new iPad. Yes, that was a little nutty, but like any story involving Apple,  it gets nuttier.

It looks like the Chinese blog that posted the original photo is being sued for stealing the part. It's not clear who is suing the blog or why (language difficulties), but it looks like the company who supplied the part may have panicked over the leak.They probably don't want Apple to think they leaked it on purpose.

I'm not sure what they hope to accomplish; the leak happened 6 months ago. Heck, suing over the leak is more damaging than the leak itself; it confirms the accuracy of the original story.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
