    Gizmodo has supposedly ID'd the guy who lost that prototype.
    Went to my school and graduated the year that I would have, so I probably had a ton of freshman/soph classes with him. Don't recognize him by the picture they include, but that pic may have well been captioned "generic white engineering student."

    besides of course Gizmodo is trying to spin the story into the "guy who lost it" instead of "the guy who took it, knowing who it belonged to, and sold it to Gizmodo."

    lawsuit

    yeah, they just ruined this guys career, and trashed him all over the tech world right now.

    He is unhirable.

    He should be able to sue for his salary * the number of years until retirement compounded with damages for this.

    You can't blame Gizmondo for for taking up a chance to see a leaked apple product. But there is no need to tell everyone the name of the guy that lost it. He has enough problems right now.

    Gawker tends to operate under a sort of renegade stance at times. Meh.

    You guys are making it sound like Apple didn't know HE lost it. Of course they know.

    But Syn's comment about "him being unhireable" may be on to something.

    No, they would never get anything out of a deal with Apple. Apple doesn't do media exclusives.

    And playing softball to get premium access is why every last television news program today is fucking terrible.

    Holy shit.

    I already hated Gizmodo for their unbridled cock-sucking of Apple products, but this is just despicable.

    I mean, really. What possessed them to think that this was at all an idea that wasn't fucking horrible?
