Apple Invokes Spirit Of Stasi In Gizmodo Takedown


So Apple didn't take Gizmodo's unveiling of its new iPhone very well. As a result Gizmodo finds itself the subject of a heavy-handed police operation with journalist Jason Chen losing his computers and having his house and vehicles searched. There doesn't seem to be any question that Apple lost its prototype and more so that the finder did try and return it to them. Has a crime been committed? Unless Gray Powell is claiming it was stolen from him I can't see how it has. Furthermore Apple's role as advisor to the police task force undertaking the investigation gives this investigation the smell of vengeance...

I wonder if this will affect Gizmodo's overly pro-Apple reporting in the future?

Now that the sordid details are out showing how this prototype was obviously stolen and then "fenced" to the highest bidder, are you going to retract your moronic post. I doubt it. You are too bigoted.
