Apple wouldn't sue someone they paid to do PR-Stunt! This was planned trick to get the hype and buzz on - Apple is so clever adverising its products in so many unknown ways.

if it's such a transparent stunt (and yes it is) is it really that clever?

I think anything that geberates Buzz of this scale is more than clever - we are talking closer to 10milj hit on Gizmodo.com alone! Add twitter, Fb and all that... Everyone is now waiting for the release of the next iPhone. That bloody brilliant PR-stunt!

According to California law, all that matters is that Gizmodo knew the phone was Apple's when they bought it. The fact that they paid $5K-$10K for it pretty much establishes this. If you chose to take possession of a lost item, you become custodian for the item and must make reasonable attempts to return it. The bar owner says no one turned it into the bar's lost and found, the obvious choice, and that the Apple employee called frantically for days looking for it. Further, the phone was disassembled after knowing it was Apple's.

Even if it was stolen, Gizmodo was told it was lost and then found. The only way that would hold up in court is if the kid that lost it came forward and said someone jumped him or was robbed, his facebook page doesn't exactly support the fact it was stolen though.

You are not kids. Need to take responsibility for your action. Gizmodo, you wanted some credit. now will get it from Apple and their lawyers
