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?
its hard to get if someone is being sarcastic because there are soo many stupid people on here lol. Thats what the "/sarcasm" is usually used for.
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.
"...like the last one did." ?????
A Chinese worker (employed by FoxComm I think it was) killed himself after losing a prototype.
lol is that true? omg

If this guys disappears too, then you know something's up That or it's got some curse on it... uh oh...
The apple ninjas came in to the guys house in the middle of the night and switched it with a bricked fake one
Gizmodo is really milking this thing for all it's worth
I work for a company that makes all kinds of prototypes for a metal shop. If someone called us, our part would be stamped in a hidden spot. All they'd have to do is tell us the item number. If Apple was called and lost opportunities, that's just plain stupid. Of course, the customer service people may not know what's going on, but surely they can put a higher up on the line to sort it out. Odds are if the phone became bricked within the hour... IT'S IMPORTANT TO SOMEONE and may have had a reward value on its head.
I like how they where able to play with the OS, didn't take any pictures or video, turn it off and the next morning it was bricked hard. Apple got with AT&T inconjunction using the wifi/3g connection on the phone (assisted GPS) on the phone. So the apple ninjas used that feature and switched it out. It was joint operation.
