Is Gawker Hack Retaliation for iPhone 4 Leak?
Seems that Gawker took a HEAVY hit this weekend when hackers stole and published a lot of data from their web sites. Not only were user accounts compromised, the hackers specifically published a lot of information about the Gawker employees. Do you think that this was retaliation for Gawker/Gizmodo leak of the iPhone 4? Conspiracy theorists have at it!

One would have to be really sad to have done it for that purpose.
Personally I didn't understand why so many people were getting sooo upset over the leak... people were literally taking it like it was a personal blow to themself!
I for one was quite delighted Gizmodo broke the news... I'mean, thats one of the main reasons I read tech blogs.. to get the latest exciting tech news first.

Gawker Attack: The Real Reason - Web Host Directory Okay so it seems that the initial reports of the attack being tied to what is going on with Wikileaks was not accurate. I found this article just now when I was looking for the initial article that I had read a couple of days ago.
