    I have a feeling that this is the way Apple gives previews to their products they just say it was an accident. Or they just need to hire new people.

    Again? Nah, this is no longer a coincidence. They are doing this to attract as much attention as they can to the product before the official release like if it would need it. Gotta hand it to them for doing a fantastic job at it. Now if they would only stop ordering the random beatings and mysterious suicides at FoxConn I would very happy.

    I think it was probably something more like this:

    They don't know where it is, the guy that found it at the bar supposedly sold it on craigslist for $200. Apparently the cops searched the guy's house and he denied ever having possession of it after Apple traced it to his house via GPS. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Making this story a little bit more interesting. Apple sent private investigators not police to find the phone, but they were acting more like police according to the person who let them search his home.

    people care way too much to the point that Apple became the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world with a projected growth for the next few years on sitting on a pretty stiff positive slope.

    I predict it will be even blockier than the transition from 3 to 4, with edges so sharp and perpendicular it'll slice your hand unless you handle it with the special iPhone 5 gloves (sold separately for $129.98 ).

    Pretty sure apple intentionally finds bars to lose their new products in.

    They should consider cafes as I'm sure that's where most of their user base spends their time. Or would that be too obvious?

    Au contraire, most rumors have it a bit more rounded, like the 3, and patterned after the iPad. But however it looks, if this is just a minor incremental change I'll wait until something more significant comes along. Like a Steve Jobs memorial model.

    This is what I don't get. Doesn't everyone know they can electronically brick their handset or get its location using their iTunes credentials on http://www.mobileme.com

    If you're an iPhone owner and decide to take a found prototype to your house, you have to expect bad things to happen. They love to write software that demands sensitive and accurate GPS. You can't open them up and take the batteries out.

    My biggest mistake was leaving my fondleslab while at the drug store.

    My housemate told me when I got home to go back and get my phone. They posted a message using the facebook app where it was for all my friends to enjoy.

    If I found a "misplaced" prototype, I would take it drop it off someplace they would hate to go and retrieve it- hidden somewhere near the sling in a bath house, the dirty back room at a leather bar, or the local Big Lots store.

    I don't think a bath house story would cause any impact on a company based in the bay area.

    I'm confident the only place they would shy away from for their prototypes is inside a nuclear containment vessel.
