Scoble: I’m GLAD that AT&T might leak my email address!!!

Just got email from uber-blogger Robert Scoble and though he didn’t include explicit permission to publish what he wrote, let’s face it, it’s Scoble. The guy craves attention. And I think it’s important to show that not everyone is being hysterical and sensationalistic about this iPad privacy issue. So here goes:

Dear Steve —

Just wanted to let you know that not all of the A-list pundits are against you on this AT&T security breach. I’ve bought several iPads, including a 3G model, and was hoping my account had been breached so that I could blog about it. Unfortunately I was not on the list, which left me temporarily without anything to say on the matter, until I realized — jeez, here I am, wishing I’d been breached, and that in itself is something to write about! I tried to think of why I would feel that way and the best thing I could come up with is that if hackers got hold of my email address they might post it somewhere, and this would only reinforce my belief that there is no such thing as privacy and we’re all just living our lives in public, every moment of every day. If anything this whole episode just makes me want to buy another 3G iPad even more than I already did, which was a lot because honestly the iPad has changed my life and I no longer use any other computer because I can do everything on the iPad. So, thanks for everything, keep up the good work, and call me if you’d ever like to have lunch or just bounce around some ideas.

Scoble pandering to media, Woz now at Valley Fair

Click here to check out TWiT Live in Palo Alto with Scoble.  (You may have to select BitGravity Bandwidth, regular audio stream acting a bit weird.) He also says Woz is already at Valley Fair in Santa Clara.


Live from Palo Alto, it’s The Scobleizer

The video’s a little choppy, and you have to click the start button a few times- but here ya go.


Uh-oh, Scoble’s targeting the Palo Alto Apple Store

Word on the street is the iPad will be on sale Saturday April 3rd. Scoble is planning some type of festivities in Palo Alto, near as I can tell.


Scoble to join Laporte in dumping iPhone

At least when El Jobso won’t return his calls, Robert will know why.  Wait, he already doesn’t return them. OK, then.


Scoble top choice for MLP replacement

That’s the current verdict of our poll (right). Please vote early and vote often. Scoble needs a gig.


Scoble prefers Facebook event to Jobso keynote

Everyone’s favorite Valley gadfly says via Twitter he’d learn more at a Facebook engineering confab, than at a El Jobso keynote.  Scobes, if you could remain awake at Steve’s keynote addresses, maybe you’d learn more.  Just an FYI, buddy. Namaste.


Scoble loves Google (again)

You’ve read all the stories today about Big G and China. Scoble has some thoughts on this here.


One more from Scoble, why not?

The headline alone is enough.  “The gadget that makes Steve Jobs jealous.”  And this: “the first device that makes my iPhone seem flawed.”  I know, hyperbole.  An iPhone cannot be flawed.  Anyway, this is all about a freebie coffee maker he got for speaking at Le Web.  Bet he didn’t pay for that Google latte’ mug, either.


Scoble tees off on Wilcox

Joe Wilcox’s somewhat myopic story on the upcoming Apple tablet struck a nerve in Half Moon Bay.  Top quote: “We all are gonna live in Steve Jobs’s tablet world soon.”
