You may enjoy reading the story of the Apple Engineer who left the 4th Generational iphone prototype at a bar. Here is the basic story on Gizmodo!
Here is the short end of the story:
So an Apple Engineer walks into a bar....Not a joke but a real story-
-Engineer throws back a few cold ones and leaves the bar with the iphone on his chair.
-Bar patron finds the iphone and takes it home.
-Patron plays with the phone and discovers it is disguised and may be the new iphone prototype.
-Apple remotely turns the phone off.
-Patron calls Apple to return the phone, but Apple basically blows him off!
-Patron calls a few tech companies to sell and gets 5K from Gizmodo for the prototype.
-Gizmodo disects the prototype and believes it is the real thing!
-Gizmodo contacts Apple about the possible iphone prototype.
-Steve Jobs calls Gizmodo and requests the stolen property to be returned.
-Gizmodo asks for the request in writing and receives 1 page paper from General Counsel!
-Gizmodo returns the iphone prototype to Apple.
I feel sorry for the engineer, but at the same time, it's his own dang fault and it's a pretty funny story! It would not surprise me if another Silicon Valley Tech company (ie Google) gives the engineer a call and offers him a job!
Who would've thought that this could happened!
