TidBITS Opinion: Think Secret Shuts Down in Wake of Apple Settlement

Adam Engst on today’s Think Secret announcement. By far the most reasonable take I’ve seen so far.

The problem is we just don’t know enough about the terms of the settlement — at this point, it’s even a jump to conclude that Apple somehow forced Think Secret to cease publication. It’s possible, and some obviously consider it likely, but it is not clear from Ciarelli’s very terse press release.
