I have been keeping up with the MoaB (month of Apple Bugs)
What are your feelings from an ethical stand point in what these two guys are doing. While I do see it as a funny smack in the face to Darth Steve, it makes me wonder if what they are doing it wrong or right or neither.
If you find out a problem with something, should you only let the person you bought it from know about it, or should it be at the will of public disclosure?
The thing is, companies are about the bottom-line, period. By letting the vendor know before hand, you are opening yourself up to another question of ethics - because you are at the mercy of what that company does with that information. If you let the bugs go public - some could say that you've served your purpose by making BOTH the vendor and then the USERS know there is something wrong, therefore it needs to be fixed and makes sure it gets a fire under the ass of said vendor to fix those problems.
I, personally, feel that public disclosure is the best action.
What are your thoughts?
