Yes they look are starting to look bad.
No they are the victims they should pursue Gizmodo.

Behshrad, you are, without a doubt, a huge disappointment. Your warped sense of reality is amazing. This has nothing to do with Apple and everything to do with crime. It's disturbing how easily you brush aside the law.

Just the fact that the kid who found it, sold it for $5000 further proves my point.
Yes if you chose to stick your head in the sand and believe that everyone in this world is law abiding individuals , then thats your choice of living in a fantasy world.

I think the law should be enforced and that neither an individual or company should be allowed to profit or benefit by breaking the law just because another individual or company, by accident, let their guard down.

You guys are hilarious this is not like it's some kid on the playground who found someone's cellphone, this is business and these guys get paid hundreds even thousands more than you and I. So why feel sorry for anyone? I knew the whole story was bogus from the first time I read it because of all the holes in the story. I beleive it will be easy to prove that Gizmodo knew it was stolen just from the story they produced to make it seem like all the bases were covered. I've found phones before and the first thing I do is look through the phonebook for either Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, Me, etc. that kind of name so I can call and leave a message where they can pick up the phone. The person who found it already knew his name so it shouldn't have been that hard to look the name up to find a number or when calling Apple ask for him by name why would you call tech support or whatever? The person who found it had the Facebook page open how easy was it to just leave a message with a number where he could be reached on the facebook page. I'm glad Gizmodo got it because now I'm salivating about it but nothing excuses stealing. Also about reality I've walked up to an ABM machine with the card still in it at the point where it asks if you want to do another transaction so all I had to do is hit Yes but I hit No and took it to the receptionist of the bank. There are decent people and there are dishonest people there is nothing crazy about someone putting an effort into getting something back to its righful owner I'm sure lots of people have done it before.

Of course he does. All they wanted was a huge story and they got it. And now they are getting even more press because of all this going on. I do agree it was wrong of them to pay for something they knew was "stolen". If anything they could have posted they have it and it is an amazing product and we should all look forward to it and then give it back to Apple. I know Apple isnt the ones pursuing this and my main point of this post was to see if you guys thought this would make Apple look bad in the eyes of the public who dont read blogs or forums and know what is really going on.

I, for one, appreciate your perspective. Some people simply don't get the concept of right and wrong anymore.

In other words, the argument of journalistic immunity has been incorrectly applied in defense of Gizmodo.

Since you apparently believe that Apple should just let this go because someone "found" the device and that is, therefore, no big deal, I assume you won't mind if someone "finds" your car?

Im not defending anybody. Im trying to explain to you that its NOT that surprising that the person that "found" the phone, decided to make a few bux off of it.
AND its not surprising that people at Gizzy paid up the price to be the first with hands on.
Let the laws deal with the crime and give out the deserved punishment. Who are we do decide who's guilty or not, when we dont have all the details.
Speculating things and having opinions is all we are entitled to. At the end of the day, if there was an actual crime commited, Im sure those responsible will pay up.

You didn't write too long a post. Some people just have a hard time reading coherent thoughts put into paragraph form. Coincidentally, these are usually the same people who abbreviate three letter words like "you" as "u." Go figure.
