Submission + - Thinksecret Gets The Axe From Apple->

mrneutron2003 writes: "Nick Ciarelli, publisher of ThinkSecret , the number one website that Apple seems to despise has agreed to close it's doors in a settlement agreement with Apple over the lawsuit filed against them. Nick gets to keep his sources a secret, and Apple gets to shut up ThinkSecret's blabbing. Being a lone college student with a small staff it's no wonder Nick caved in to the mounting legal pressure.

December 20, 2007 -PRESS RELEASE 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."

Though there are still a few websites left that cater to the Apple community in a way that the "Jobs Mob" doesn't particularly like, the loss of ThinkSecret will definitely be one felt by many in the Apple community as a bad thing. Another dissenting voice in the blogosphere dies, and the news becomes more bland, and more in lockstep with what a manufacturer wants you to hear.
