get. a. life. (or a game and then play it).

Apple probably saw it as an overpriced gimmick and scoffed at it but then realised a month later it was their product.

lol because playing games means you have more of a life than people being interested in the new iPhone models ?

1) Little does he know that the iPhone is a gaming platform...
2) By the same comparison one can say he has no life for browsing a gaming news site.

How could I be a gamer and seriously say to someone "get a life". And then, as an added hint, I say "or a game"... Duh.
Sarcasm out of your bounds or what?

Actually (not 100% sure, but I think it is so), in California the law states that the one who loses an item has three years to claim it back.
If that period passes and no one comes to claim the item, the owner of the property where the item is lost becomes the owner of the item.
A person who finds the item has no legal right to ownership; their legal obligation is to report the item found to the property owner or to the police.

Let's see if the guy who lost it kills himself like the last one did.

" the last one did." ?????

A Chinese worker (employed by FoxComm I think it was) killed himself after losing a prototype.
