The iPad caucus has sprung a leak. Early subscribers to the iPad — people like New York Times Co. CEO Janet Robinson — are in danger of spam and other things.
The breach, which comes just weeks after an Apple employee lost an iPhone prototype in a bar, exposed the most exclusive email list on the planet, a collection of early-adopter iPad 3G subscribers that includes thousands of A-listers in finance, politics and media, from New York Times Co. CEO Janet Robinson to Diane Sawyer of ABC News to film mogul Harvey Weinstein to Mayor Michael Bloomberg. It even appears that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s information was compromised.
Wowzer! O.K., now resume Scrabbling under the table, Larry Summers.
