    But... but... does this mean that maybe ALL tech companies are concerned about their IP? Whew -- at least now people will go easier on Apple about that sort of thing...

    Fox news?!?!??!?!

    Fox News? Really? Maybe it has nothing to do with the election, but never, NEVER quote an article published by Romney Campaign Headquarters!!!

    Yeah, I mean, Fox News is the ONLY news organization here in the United States that shills for a political party or political candidate. That means their news isn't reliable worth ****. He should've posted something from MSNBC instead. They don't shill at all. EVER.

    Just like Apples lost iphone 4 three years ago. Funny how it's always a bar.
    I'm waiting for someone to loose a prototype in a strip club or even better a some bizarre bondage club.

    Also cant help if it's just a publicity stunt? Apple got a lot of attention with the unofficial/official leaked photos of the lost iphone 4, not that they really needed it.
    Maybe Microsoft should loose some proto type window8 phones or some slates in a bar:)

    I dunno looks like a phone to me. Plus who cares what it looks like, does it work is my main concern.
