The NYT’s gadget guru, David Pogue, did get a sneak-preview review copy of Apple’s new operating system for a week, which is another favor Apple PR gives to approved journalists. But he does not appear to have gotten access to Apple’s execs, the way John Gruber and the WSJ did.
Compelling, when you consider that such a move could be backlash for The New York Times’ “iEconomy” series. The only problem? Total bullshit.
As Gruber himself corrects:
By sheer coincidence, I can report that this is nonsense. When I left my briefing with Schiller last Wednesday in New York, waiting in the hallway for the next briefing was: David Pogue.

Well, maybe not “Twitter”, but a Twitter client. :)
