Apple and a popular Web site that published company secrets about
the maker of the Mac computer, the iPhone and the iPod have reached a settlement that calls for the site to shut down.
Apple and the site, ThinkSecret.com, settled the suit, which Apple
filed in January 2005, and no sources were revealed, Apple and
ThinkSecret said in statements.
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."
Apple filed its suit after ThinkSecret published details of a
stripped-down Macintosh computer called the Mac mini two weeks
before the product was launched formally.
