    I had a friend participate in a study he found about cell phone usage on craigslist one time and he was given the iPhone that he uses for the study. This was actually the compensation for being in the study. I'm not 100% sure if generally did it, or just told me he did and actually bought an iPhone? But I saw the add on CL myself and actually told him about it. Odd, I'm thinking that apple would be a little more sectretive than to throw an add on craigslist. Something tells me that jobs isnt in to free services like CL

    Apple do not post on CL. They have no need to.

    I don't understand how, semantically, anyone would ever read that post and think it's legit. Even the most affected person would never write sentences like that.
