it was taken from a Mexican restaurant and bar and may have been sold on Craigslist for $200.

When San Francisco police and Apple's investigators visited the house, they spoke with a man in his twenties who acknowledged being at Cava 22 on the night the device went missing. But he denied knowing anything about the phone. The man gave police permission to search the house, and they found nothing, the source said.
uh sir, i'd like to see your Apple badge before you search my house.

Lightening striking twice in the same spot!

You would think anyone with a top secret prototype of any electronic device would be a little more careful with the thing.

All this seems more like a plant. Almost deliberate. Like politicians with a stack of highly confidential papers under their arm getting photographed. And then the content of the top of the stack gets exposed because the paparazzi zoom in on those papers. Very suspicious.

2: No. Apple should get their act together!

I'm starting to think that Apple is doing this on purpose. And it might not be that bad of an idea, it increases hype and brings more publicity.

Deliberate, if it's *actually* a bona fide iPhone prototype.

And quite frankly, very clever.

A little piece - just a taste - of the next Holy Grail of smartphones left for the public to drool over and speculate on. Apple owns the tech news with this story for the next few weeks.

Remember what happened last time?

Apple testers should really start watching their booze intake.

If this is a publicity stunt by the restaurant, it’s highly creative!

They should have had the iPhone GPS lead police and camera crews to a catered Mexican buffet, though.
