Apple reportedly called Gizmodo earlier today after the images of the unreleased device were posted to the internet. The prototype iPhone was reportedly left at a bar by an Apple employee. The letter reads:
It has come to our attention that GIZMODO is current in possession of a device that belongs to Apple. This letter constitutes a formal request that you return the device to Apple. Please let us know where to pick up the unit.

The letter is signed by Apple's Senior Vice President & General Counsel Bruce Sewell.

Gizmodo, of course, will be returning the phone.





whoa


i never questioned that it was, in fact, an iPhone prototype... gizmodo is too big a site to post it unless they were pretty damn sure.

my only question is wether or not apple was in on it and this is some sort of viral marketing campaign... not really apple's style but still... a guy just randomly forgets it at a bar and somebody picks it up and has contact information for tech sites?

seems a little convenient.

Sounds like I need to get another iPod and try it.

The 5 computer thing pisses me off because the "deauthorize" this computer thing gets hiccup-y.

If you have a computer die, you can't deauthorize it, so you have to deauthorize all of your computers from iTunes and then reauthorize each one.

In my opinion, I honestly do not think that Apple did this on purpose.
I am also surprised by the lack of design by this new unit, it's very "square"....not something that Ivey is known for.

I think it is just a proto? type.


they use that box to put the new components in and test it.

when they go to production, they get the slicker design.

Well, expect an announcement soon for Verizon to get an iPhone as I just preordered the HTC Incredible. My Crackberry isn't going to last until June and well, the Incredible looks pretty nifty.

Here's an interesting article, show what would happen if you bought Apple stock instead of an Apple product:

i've said it before and i'll say it again, apple need to remove themselves from their own asses.

it really detracts, in my mind, from usually high quality products.

sigh

The cd loaded just fine into my iMac here at home, but now it's been stuck in my iMac at work for two days. I can hear it in there, jerkily spinning when I start up the computer. I've tried everything there is to try that you can find online. I really liked the cd, too. It's Magic Lantern's new record, Platoon.

I want it back.

Mouse button down while restarting?

unfolded paper clip into the little hole on the right side of the slot load drive?

Uh... pliers?

Not yet.
The battery compartment will be 20% bigger giving the unit a longer performance.
Next month, right?
