    "done for theft by finding" doesn't make sense.

    I understand that what you meant to say was "I hope that they are convicted of buying stolen goods," but that's not what you said.

    That's exactly what I didn't say if you go back and read my edit. I'll do the sentence again, and replace 'done' with 'charged' as smarthero suggests. I'll also elaborate and use more words. For clarity.

    I hope the person that discovered the iPhone prototype is found and charged with "Theft by Finding". Also, that Gizmodo is charged with handling stolen goods.

    Yes, the notoriously secretive company that holds highly anticipated press conferences to launch new products announced the newest version of one of their most successful products by leaving it in a bar and hoping some tech blog will pick up the story.

    Good lord.

    I haven't read enough of this thread to know whether or not it's fake, but I seriously hope it's not. i've been saying from the beginning that the iphone was just one front facing camera away from being the futuristic movie prop you always see. All of those listed features give me boners.

    They *could* be related.

    A month or two back some dude at one of their Chinese production facilities lost one of their prototypes in the mail enroute to Apple stateside. He jumped off a roof and offed himself, after allegedly being intimidated and threatened by the production facility's security team.

    Good lord.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it didn't actually get left in a bar.

    Also, Apple is "notoriously secretive" for a company that routinely purposefully leaks well-controlled "rumors" to a horde of blogs and tech-journalists who function as an in-house hype machine for anything Apple sends out into the ether as long as it's marked "leaked" or "rumored."

    But on the phone itself, it looks incredibly sexy. My 3G has gotten pretty beat-up and it feels a little slow these days. Plus I want multitasking and I'm too lazy to jailbreak my shit. I like the styling and all the features sound amazing. Plus I plan on getting an iPad ASAP, and I'm interested to see how the two will integrate.

    As to the HTC Evo or the Nexus One -- they're fine phones, but seriously how many times do we have to hear arguments about feature-sets and functionality? People love the iPhone because of the holistic user experience. The entire reason Apple products are successful is specifically because the whole unit of the user experience is compelling. It can't be broken down efficiently into specs and stats. Every phone has a holistic user experience, but that experience is much less compelling so specs and functions take on a more important focus.

    And there's nothing objectively right or wrong about valuing functionality over holistic experience or vice versa. It's a stupid debate. You can't compare things if you're using different metrics.

    We don't use "done" that way. That's why people got confused. Well, not those of us who can figure things out through context, but I'm sure the plebs found it difficult.

    That would be the most badass of moves ever, and Gizmodo would never get press access to anything Apple ever again.
