Global leaking?

by Roger Pynn

Gifted public speaker, former VP Al Gore no doubt gets a paycheck from Apple as a member of its board of directors … and although it is being touted as a gaffe, his “oops moment” at a summit in South Africa could also be seen as a beautifully strategic use of this larger than life corporate asset.

It makes you want to ask whether the iPhone 4 prototype “left” in a Silicon Valley pub might actually have been carefully placed there as part of piquing interest in the next generation of Apple’s game-changing smart phone.

After all, although Gizmodo’s Jason Chen was investigated for theft, no charges were brought after more than a year of questioning.

Hmmmm!  Could this be strategy?
