Yeah, although I can't see why Apple would need to do that, it does seem VERY convenient that it was picked up by somebody who: a) didn't just steal it, and b) knew enough about what it appeared to be and thus have a reason to send it to Gizmodo.PayJ567 said:
Well, considering how much someone would want one (I know if a friend at Apple showed me a prototype, I'd taze him, steal it, and turn it over to the press) it's not surprising they get "lost" but I don't think for a moment they're getting paid to lose them.ColdStorage said:I was just using the Chinese story as a reference point that Apple always lose there shit.danpascooch said:Since the Chinese story, these prototypes have been in existence for at least 6 months, and I can't imagine Apple having somebody lose not even knowing if it would reach the press.ColdStorage said:This happens all the time with Apple, I'm guessing people are getting paid to lose them, I'm pretty certain that all new model prototypes have been left in a bar (apart from the 1st 2g model).
Also, the Chinese story actually works AGAINST your argument, because I can't imagine a publicity stunt for an IPhone in which a guy kills himself, a company is accused of a brutal beating, and absolutely no details of the product the stunt is for gets released.

But why is this a problem for Apple? It's not like it will make a difference on who buys it now, is it?
