Business Week’s Heather Green has a very interesting Blogspotting post on the strategy behind the “leaked” Steve Jobs memo about the underwhelming customer reaction to Apple’s new MobileMe application. She writes:

By doing this through an internal email he gets to control the perception of how Apple is dealing with the issue, rather than opening himself up to any pesky follow-up comments or reporters’ questions if he did this on a blog or through a news interview.

 

A smart communications strategy indeed.
