Steve Jobs Does not Heart Blogs

Via Reuters:  Apple’s Jobs speaks out on missing iPhone and the danger of blogs.

Two quick thoughts:

1)  The man continues to come across as quite the control freak.

2)  I can understand going after Gizmodo.  (I am not sure, by the way, that Gizmodo is really emblematic of blogging, per se).

Full disclosure:  I love my iPhone and have a moderate case of iPad lust.
