Ever since Gizmodo released details of the 2010 iPhone, the site has been on Apple's blacklist. Last on the call-back list, barred from keynote presentations, advertising pulled. We'd do the same again. The story — a prototype left in a bar by a hapless Apple engineer, the first time Apple's rollout was pre-empted — was one for the ages.

Although Apple's pet police force broke into the apartment of one of their colleagues, Gizmodo writers continued to review the company's products without bias. And one of those reviews made it into Phil Schiller's presentation at today's Apple keynote. It's gratifying that a great story has a longer life than the resentment it generated.
