It’s been nearly three years since Think Secret editor Nick Ciarelli caught the wrath of Apple for leaking info on the Mac Mini and iWork prior to MacWorld. The result was a long, drawn out legal battle that has finally come to a rather lame conclusion.
A press release posted this morning on Think Secret reads:
Apple and Think Secret have settled their lawsuit, reaching an agreement that results in a positive solution for both sides. As part of the confidential settlement, no sources were revealed and Think Secret will no longer be published. Nick Ciarelli, Think Secret’s publisher, said “I’m pleased to have reached this amicable settlement, and will now be able to move forward with my college studies and broader journalistic pursuits.”
It’s unclear how this can be conceived as positive, but I’m glad that Nick has managed to find some peace after fighting Cupertino.
