What's next--checkpoints on the local roads?
Police officials said they helped Apple investigators, who searched a man's home here recently.
They were reportedly looking for a prototype of the next iPhone that an Apple employee left in a bar in San Francisco's Mission neighborhood, according to CNET.
Several thoughts occur to me. First, I wonder if the Apple investigators can be charged with impersonating a police officer? Second, haven't we seen this movie before? Is this really just some sort of "too clever by half" marketing campaign?
And third, I've been waiting out the end of my current cell phone contract, which happily coincides with the supposed release date of the iPhone 5. I was busy anticipating it as my first smart phone. Suddenly, Android-based ones look better.
