If you have been following the happenings in the mobile world for past 1 week, you might have definitely come across a story of an irate iPhone 4 customers email exchange with Steve Jobs which was published on BGR.
Now, after the BGR story was published several other blogs caught up on it, however, there were few blogs like AppleInsider and Engadget who said that the story was false and that Steve Jobs never had an email exchange with the said person. Apple even went ahead and published an open letter about poor network reception which was not convincing enough.
Now after a few days since that post and all the Apple PR machinery denials, BGR has come up with another post, which claims that the entire story is true and still holds. They even went to the extent of saying that they had paid the person in question and have also accessed his Google Apps account to verify the authenticity of the emails.
Faking emails is definitely possible and easy, however, it is definitely hard to spoof IP addresses and according to BGR those were pretty much leading to Steve Jobs himself. Agreed that Apple is having a hard time with the iPhone 4 Antenna issues, however, is it fair for them to start lying about things to the world and their customers or do you still think that the BGR story is somehow fake?
