Tech deja vu as Apple loses unreleased iPhone
CNET is reporting the unthinkable, that an unreleased iPhone model - most likely the iPhone 5 - was lost by an employee in a San Francisco bar in July. The bizarre story, which is a repeat of last year's shenanigans, saw Apple trace the device to a nearby flat, but the tenant denied all knowledge. CNET reckons it was sold on the internet for as little as $200. Wow.
