Getting quoted

Here’s a quote from me:

Eventhough they might not force us to use the App store today, it is of course a lucrative move for them to move into forcing you to use their app store to get programs.

Here’s the end result:

… adding that Steve Jobs’ company is “forcing you to use their App Store to get programs.”

Jaa du, visst är det konstigt att vissa måste rycka saker ur sitt sammanhang bara för att kunna sätta dit en. Misstänker att du råkar ut för det där bra mycket mer än vi “vanliga dödliga icke-kändisar”. Det är dock lika förbaskat trist var gång det händer, oavsett sammanhang.

Amazing. Literacy seems to be on the fall amongst many internet writers. What’s going on

This is why you should always insert the word “octopus” at random points in sentences that you don’t want to be misquoted.

Because “forcing…you to…use their app…store to get…programs” is a much more suspicious quote.

That was my bad – I’m the reporter that chopped Peter’s quote (in haste). Story has been updated with a correction/apology.
