Apple Settles Suit to Keep Secrets Safe

Apple reaches a deal with a college student who had been running a Web site that leaked juicy tidbits about Apple products. The student agreed to shut down the site, which has been an irritant to the company. Apple sued ThinkSecret.com after it published details of a new computer model before its official launch.

It's unclear why the student settled. A senior at Harvard, he says he'll move forward with "broader journalistic pursuits."
