That is the question

by GSG In reply to Lost

I got to talking with a co-worker, and we figure that someone at Apple, if it is indeed an iphone, turned it over for cash. Otherwise, how did Gizmodo get its hands on it? We also talked about it being a marketing gimmick, but that seems unlikely as the iPhone seems to not need any marketing.

Actually, put an Apple logo on it, and put an "i" in front of the name, and people seem to line up to hand over their cash no matter what it is, so a marketing ploy seems unlikely.

Edited for horrendous typos.

I too think you could put an Apple logo on a, I don't know, a cow "pie" and name it, "iPie" and legions of apple fanteens would rush to purchase the iPie with drool spewing from their lustful lips.

Maybe I'm on to something?

I can find a lot of cowpies.

As a side note, nothing funnier than putting a firecracker in a fresh one and having it explode as your sibling walks by. SPLAT!

However, not funny when it's your mom walking by. I got my firecrackers taken away for that one.

Or maybe it's a "plant"

maybe the "loss" was staged, so they could have a trial balloon without admitting it.

"We got it. We disassembled it.

Maybe I'm more than a bit thick but doesn't that imply they the site releasing this story is not only in possession of Now Stolen Property but that they have destroyed it?

As for the rest I think that it's a great marketing Stunt that Steve Jobs has pulled by leaving it in a Bar. :^0
