After reading the story on Gizmodo, the raid seems a little fishy to me. First of all, they did the raid at night, even though it said in the warrant that a night raid was not authorized. Also, Apple serves on the steering committee of REACT (Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team), the group that did the raid.

I just posted it. But I'm sure Apple has some serious pull so who knows the real politics and what not behind it. Fabe

Oh the drama. The ironic, anti-climactic drama.

True. So very true.


Apple are just really pissed because they didn't get a chance to pull one of their 'quiver with anticipation unveiling' product launches.

Steve even had his new turtle neck all ready...

LOL I read an article on Steve and his all inspiring presentation rallying the Apple workers into a frenzy all the time as part of his hyping a new product. I'm sure he was ticked off not being able to do one of his famous on stage introductions. Was an article in Wallstreet about how much longer his health would allow his flamboyant introductions. And how it would effect the price of Apple stock. Fabe

If this is true, and Apple did this, I will and all my family and friends will NEVER by Apple again. Apple lost it too bad, remember freedom of speech!

As silly as those 'introductions' are (to me anyway) it's actually kind of sad when put into the context that it could've been one of his last few extravaganzas. For all we know, it may have been his last

(Which would have made that turtleneck even more special )

Oh, I'm certain Apple would have exerted some serious pressure to get it done.


Whether it be 'legal or moral', gizmodo knowingly did obtain a device that was essentially stolen. 'Finders keepers' isn't really a legal loophole, or at least it shouldn't be.


It's not really all that different if Joe Citizen bought a TV from a 'bloke in the pub'.

Joe Citizen can claim he doesn't know it was stolen, but when proven beyond doubt that it was - he doesn't get to keep it - no matter how much he paid.

Yes return the product. But Apples is mad that a story was written.

Didn't the guy who found it make several attempts to give it back to Apple without any luck?
