Search Warrant affidavit unsealed in lost iPhone case
Gizmodo editor Jason Chen is being investigated for possible receipt of stolen property, copying a trade secret and destruction of property worth more than $400. Gizmodo had taken the prototype apart and Apple claimed that doing this left the phone damaged. The affidavit includes the whole story of how the iPhone was found at the Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City. Apple engineer Gray Powell had put the phone inside a bag which was placed on the floor. The phone might have slipped out of the bag and even Powell feels that it was unlikely that the phone was stolen. California law considers it theft if property is found and used for the "finder's" benefit without making an effort to return the property to its rightful owner. No charges have been filed yet, but are expected soon. Hogan is a suspect and there still is a chance that Chen or Gizmodo could be named defendants.

Again I think it all come down to the money aspect of it. Had the passed hands without money then it would have been a simple case of lost and found. But when you add money into it, Gizmodo bought a phone that they knew belonged to Apple.

Well according to my vocabulary I must at least be in high school. You, on the other hand, are clearly struggling in kindergarten. You would be the typical idiot bashing a phone that hasn't even been released. Takes all sorts to make the world go 'round, glad you could fill the moron portion of that equation.

Gowireless, I'm embarrassed that you're even on Verizon. You're seriously dragging down the intelligence quota there...
