Did Apple Intentionally Leak the iWatch Story?

Forbes is suggesting that Apple may have been the source behind recent reports of an iWatch.

Rumors about what’s ahead usually originate in Asia from checks with Apple suppliers, but recent rumors about iWatch were a departure from the past. They did not appear as usual in Asia but almost simultaneously in the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The information on iWatch in the two venerable publications came just before Apple CEO Tim Cook was to speak at Goldman Sachs Technology conference.

Bloomberg reported that Apple has a team of 100 designers working on the watch likely led by senior director of engineering, James Foster, and another executive.

The New York Times reported that Apple is experimenting with wristwatch-like devices made of curved glass.

Forbes suggests that perhaps Apple leaked the story to give weight to Tim Cook's statement at the Goldman Sachs Conference that innovation has never been stronger at Apple, or perhaps because they found out that Samsung has a smartwatch of its own on the way.

Because while the PP is an investment or a show-off, it does not do anything else.

Why not a caucasian or Hispanic, or african american or any other ethnicity?, profiling is the fringe of hate crimes, please refrain from this kind of comments.
