Apple Employee Loses iPhone Prototype…Again
An Apple employee left a prototype of a new iPhone in a restaurant…doesn’t this sound familiar?
This time around, the prototype was left behind in a Mexican restaurant in San Fransisco, and then sold on Craigslist for $200. (seems awfully low for a brand new iPhone…) Apple has enlisted the police to help look for the phone, but so far, they have not been able to recover it.
If this is all starting to ring a bell, it’s because the exact same thing happened last year with a prototype of the iPhone 4. And if you’ll recall, it caused a huge buzz about the iPhone 4. Now, one year later, the very same thing happens with the next version of the iPhone? It’s pretty obivious that this is a publicity scheme for the iPhone 5, cause I really don’t think Apple would tolerate one of their guys making the same mistake twice.
What I’d really like to know is why the guy who found only wanted $200 for it…
