When we saw the letter from Apple to Gizmodo asking for the iPhone 4G back, most saw it as proof that the product Gizmodo had was legit. However, we here at the Church thought differently. We were suspicious at the beginning of this whole fiasco, partially due to the fact that Apple has been so amazing at its security measures.
The letter looked and read odd to us, and as others (few actually) have stated, we wondered if the letter was real. The wording sounded a tad bizarre. Then someone pointed out the logo in the top right corner and asked, “why purple Gizmodo?” Not only that, but why the old outdated logo? After doing some Google searches ourselves, we found one other person questioning the authenticity of the letter: David Dicillo. Below is the letter that Gizmodo put up, and below that is the one from 2009. Notice that the 2009 version of stationary not only has a different logo, but also uses a san-serif font in the lower right with the company’s information. As Dicillo points out, Gizmodo’s copy has the old circa 2005 logo and font in the lower right. Apple stopped using the serif font a long time ago (we remember it from ’97-’98 actually.)
What do you think? Larger versions are on Dicillo’s site here for more detailed look.
