Apple employee does another oopsie by losing an iPhone prototype in a bar yet again

Who knows what it is. It could be the drinking and all, or possibly the stress befalling them since they’re guarding a previous device, but it seems that iPhone prototypes are prone to being lost for some odd reason...

@nexos. While you're a humble, kindhearted, and soft spoken person, right? NOT.

Apple did give free bumpers when they didn't really have to. Has any OEM done that? Also, are you that destitute that you live off of giveaways or freebies? Hahahaha. Again, just shows how cheap android fanboys are. Always looking for free stuff, lol. Android fanboys need to get good paying jobs like iOS users have :)

Haha you obviously are misguided... Succesful people actually use Blackberries, I'm almost certain even Steve Jobs uses one. He passed on the iPhone cause he actually knows how crappy it is. I know 4 people who work at McDonald's and they own an iPhone. McDonald's = Good Paying Job = NOT!!! EPIC FAIL!!!! @530Gemini

Apple may used new technology in an old iPhone 4 instead of new iPhone 5 prototype this is why they don't know it was a new iPhone 5.

Well this is probably going to end up on eBay after a year like the iPhone4 prototype a few months ago. Did that ever sell, last I checked the bid was up to a million dollars so I'm not sure if it was fake or what the hell happened. At least Steve can rest knowing its not posted online with details.

Another iPhone lost at a bar?

So it means one of following...

a. Seller on craigslist is fool...not to identify new iPhone 5/4s
b. Apple decided to carry same look/dimentions from iPhone 4 to iPhone 5/4s

Yeah, what if it's a way for Apple to generate a buzz around the gadget prior to its release... Marketing gimmick...

I agree. Sounds like marketing gimmick/iphone publicity to me

Or, it could just be an apple marketing plan to build hype.

What is up with Apple employees with iphone prototypes in bars?

Silly, silly, silly. You would think that they've learned something from last year's fiasco, and here they go again. Unless of course this time it's nothing more than a publicity stunt that Apple pulled to keep the excitement and anticipation going.

Which would kinda show that the iPhone 5 has nothing behind it, if they are that desperate, don't you think?

Oh, wait - we already KNOW there is nothing on the iPhone 5 which doesn't exist already on early 2011 devices. Except the OS which is insanely limited, that is.

@illa. Stop with your hating. Use your common sense. No one would buy the iphone if it's a useless device. And again, I was speculating, but you're already taking it as a fact. Oh well, you'd take any speculation to be a fact if it would work for your hating.

Unlike android OEM's, Apple does not release a dozen phone every year. So of course other OEM's take advantage of that to make it seem like they're ahead. But look at which device latest android devices get compared to. Last year's ip4.

Stop the bitterness. Iphone will continue to rule for a long time.

Or maybe selling it on Craigslist was just a diverson.. I mean that price is even a little on the cheap side for an iPhone 4..

The story did, just because some iDiot misplaces his prototype of the "NEW" iphone does not necessarily mean everyone is going to go mob the stores in order to get their hands on it.

I'm a Fan of Technology, not of specifics...

Glad the police have nothing better to do than to protect $teve Job$ and Apple. Maybe they can help me find my lost homework I dropped somewhere. Of course I expect Apple to sue somebody/file criminal charges against some innocent member of the general public. Better yet, why not introduce a bill which would make it a felony if you are in possession anything that $teve disapproves of.

Of course. Apple pays billions of dollars of taxes each year. How much taxes do you pay? Lol. And you'd compare your worthless homework to an iphone prototype, hahahahaha. Dumb android fanboys. You guys never fail to confirm your stupidity.

It's more like you're the one who would want to introduce a bill to make it a felony for anyone to like iDevices, not Steve.

And exactly from what part of @Policehavenothingbettertodo posting, do you assume he is an android fanboy?
