BGR reported this week an email chain purportedly between an iPhone 4 customer and SJobs (or whomever answers his emails).  It was pretty strong on both sides.

For the first time in memory, Apple PR went on record saying to Fortune and later Engadget (emphasis ours):

“Asked on the record whether Steve Jobs was the author of any of these statements, a top Apple spokesman emphatically denied it.”

The headers look pretty legit and Boy Genius was given access to the original leaker’s Gmail account where he logged in and confirmed the emails were from the account.  

He is claiming that they are legitimate and that the only way that Steve Jobs didn’t author them is if Jobs really isn’t answering his own emails…which wouldn’t be that surprising.

Either way, an interesting story…we’ll see if anything else develops.
