so some engineer at apple lost his phone, which just happened to be a prototype of the iphone 4.
the story breaks down like this: gizmodo acquired the phone, then published a bunch of stuff about it, apple asked for the phone back, gizmodo complied, and then apple turned around and sent the cops to wreak havoc, presumably as punishment for leaking news on the jesus phone. i already pretty much hate apple because of their love affair with control of the iPlatform, but this gestapo bullshit cinches it.
also, if you aren’t using block level crypto on your laptops and servers, now is the time to start. srsly.
so the burning question for me is, how can apple do this? why do the cops just do what apple tells them? don’t people who publish news have protections under that pesky little document called the constitution?
