LMAO. Whomever was carrying that prototype likely isn't working for Apple any longer, nor will he ever get a good reference from them.

It has been revealed that it wasn't actually left in a Bar, Gawker media (the people that own Gizmodo) paid $5000 for the prototype.

Oh, maybe that was the case. I just read something about them paying $5000 for it. I guess I didn't read the whole story...

Yeah, it was left in a bar, but sold to them afterward for a hefty sum.

This is getting crazy. The California attorney general may be filing charges, Jason Chen has items seized from his home, Gawker Media is pulling the bloggers are journalists defence and more!

I always enjoy seeing both Apple AND Gawker (two utterly douchbaggy companies, but in rather different ways) suffer whenever possible, so, this whole situation is ideal for me, really.

Personally I'm rooting for Gizmodo because I liked the 4th generation iPhone shitstorm.
