Gawker Offer Leads to Apple ‘Reveal’ About Tablet

Gawker Media is offering up to $100,000 to anyone who can provide the blog network with an advanced look at the device, which is expected to be unveiled on January 27.  According to Business Insider, here's how that breaks out:

  • $10,000 for bona fide pictures
  • $20,000 for video of one in action
  • $50,000 for pictures or video of Steve Jobs holding one
  • $100,000 to let us play with one for an hour

Update: In a "cease and desist" letter sent to Gawker Media about this offer and published by Gizmodo, Apple "probably" confirms the existence of the tablet, saying that the "information [Gawker Media is] willing to pay for, such as photos of a yet-to-be released product, constitutes Apple trade secrets."
