DOJ sees Steve Jobs Email as “Smoking Gun” in Apple E-Book Case

The fact that the late founder of Apple, Steve Jobs cannot be present at the trial has made for some pretty strange curiosities to occur. One of them is the so-called “smoking gunemail by Steve that the DOJ has cited as proof of foul play in the giant company’s ranks. However, according to AllThingsD, the only thing is that the email was never sent. It was a discarded sample. The DOJ was trying to proof its point that Apple had connived with book publishers to fix the prices of its e-books. But now what was evidence for its position has turned out to be detrimental to its image.

Apple has always stated that it never did anything wrong in the first place and that it was not guilty of malpractice. As for this particular Jobs email, it was included in the evidence at the last moment and that is when the whole scheme backfired.

The biggest fact that remains as a stumbling block in the way of the obstinate DOJ is that the sender of all those emails that are being cited as evidence of a cover-up, is no longer alive. Steve Jobs died of cancer a year or two ago.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
