Apple seems to have lost yet another iPhone prototype.Apple seems to have lost yet another iPhone prototype.

Here we go again - not sure how Apple would've been able to make the same mistake twice given the publicity of the last prototype that was lost. A teardown of the device has revealed an Apple branded microchip, just like the iPad.

Apple would like their device back from Gizmodo, sends official letter.Apple would like their device back from Gizmodo, sends official letter.

Well, this whole story just keeps getting more interesting every minute. Apple has acknowledged the existence of said missing device and sent notice asking for return. Gizmodo has decided to post the letter along with a casual smart-alecky response as well. Not a good way to win brownie points or future media event invitations.

If you haven't heard by now (which you probably have but we'll continue anyway) Gizmodo mysteriously got their hands on a prototype of the next generation iPhone which was supposedly left in a bar by an Apple employee. This breach of Apple security and the entire story itself is raising all kinds of questions about media ethics.

The power of the Interwebs was enough to sway White House officials to have President Obama deliver his speech on a different night. Congratulations Interwebs, you make us all very proud.

Lost Venetian city just recently uncovered by scientists.Lost Venetian city just recently uncovered by scientists.

Infrared images, which reveal heat given off from the ground, showed how drought affected corn and soybean crops growing over the site, in turn revealing the streets, buildings and even the large canal that once ran through the middle of the vanquished city.

Neat story but I don't think this course of action should be recommended to all owners of lost iPhones.
