Apple Finally Shuts down 'Think Secret' Rumor Site

Think SecretYou might remember back in 2005 when Apple sued the Apple rumor site Think Secret. The suit had one specific goal in mind: to find out the sources leaking information from Apple after Think Secret had managed to score the lowdown on a little piece of hardware called the Mac Mini.

Apple and Think Secret have settled, out of court, and as part of that agreement Nick Ciarelli, publisher of Think Secret, has shut down his site. According to a statement posted at Think Secret, the two parties reached "an agreement that results in a positive solution for both sides. As part of the confidential settlement, no sources were revealed and Think Secret will no longer be published." Nick is then quoted later on, "I'm pleased to have reached this amicable settlement."

We hope he's telling the truth and wish him luck.
