There won't be any charges pressed against Jason Chen or Gizmodo for the infamous iPhone 4 prototype that was lost in a bar last year by an absent-minded Apple engineer, and obtained by the tech blog...

I wonder what Apple's response to this case is. As I recall, they sent the police to the guy's house to confiscate his computers and stuff. It seemed like an over reaction on Apple's part to send in the cops like that.

Read the article in the SF Chronicle this morning...yea Chen co-operated with the "electronic devices"...apparently Jobs said several people around him had said to let it go (probably some folks with good sense), but after pondering on it he felt he couldn't let his ideals be compromised or whatever, he just couldn't let it go so the guys that sold the thing may get up to a year if convicted but they may get off because they have no records and they are remorseful.

Glad he didn't get charged. I think Apple got their point across though.
