Surveillance video of lost Apple iPhone 5 in Cava 22 bar was automatically erased
posted by Alan F. / Oct 03, 2011, 10:30 PM
The 6 cameras do not record continuous video, instead they take pictures every 3 minutes apart and the video is saved for a small amount of time. Besides, the bar itself is poorly lit leaving images that are hard to decipher, especially when looking for something that no one has ever seen before. Jose Valle, whose family owns Cava 22, says he told the SFPD that the video is no longer available. A good question to ask would be, why did the SFPD wait so long to ask to see the tapes? Valle originally told Cnet that he had the tapes in question and would let them be viewed for a fee, which Cnet declined.
While Apple never filed a police report, the SFPD is said to be conducting an internal investigation of how two Apple investigators searched the home of Sergio Calderon, the person originally accused of ending up with the prototype. The Apple investigators found nothing unusual after searching Calderon's home and no one has claimed to have possession of the prototype.
Tomorrow, Apple is expected to introduce the next-gen Apple iPhone 5 and a Apple iPhone 4S. As we reported, a WSJ story today claims that Sprint has locked itself into a deal with Apple and will get an exclusive on the iPhone 5 while AT&T and Verizon get to offer customers a slightly improved Apple iPhone 4S.

I mean, seriously. Why is it that there is always an iPhone, that is supposedly "under wraps", ending up in a damn BAR??? A BAR!!! Really, what do Apple employees do? Decide that bars are the best way to "cause commotion" about an upcoming product? .... "Hey, let me just slip this demo phone under the table there; just enough for people to see it and cause hype". I mean, enough is enough. All this damn secrecy. What ever happened to good old fashioned ADVERTISING? Or is THIS the new way of "spreadin' the word"? My goodness. Let's just hope that Apple doesn't kick THIS poor schmuck's door down.

Nah. 1Q of 2012. The iPhone 6 or 5S will be out around end of 2Q or start of 3Q 2012. The sequence of events is that the new model getting lost in a bar is about 3 months before the phone actually is released. I wonder where the iPhone 6 or 5S will be 'lost'? East Bay, anyone?

I imagine SF must be a utopia because all crimes have been taking care of. Now the SFPD have more time to do more for there corporate masters. There is absolutely no crime in SF everyone its totally safe! Only lost supposedly prototype cell phone recoveries.
