iPhone Loss 'Huge' -- Thanks, Gizmodo

Apple has been very aggressive with its prosecution of its case against Gizmodo since the tech site outed the next generation iPhone on its site a few weeks ago. New court documents reveal that according to Apple, it is suffering huge losses in sales as people sit on the sidelines waiting for the next round of hardware.

So, basically, Apple are pissed because they less opportunity to screw the customer (before the story broke, the could have sold them a 3G and then a 4G later, now they can only sell them a 4G). At least, that's how I read it.

Irrespective of what happens to the journalist, he's going to be a legend when he gets out.

The guy TRIED to give it back!! But Apple, in what might be described in MANY ways, Denied all knowledge of the phone, and missed their chance to recover it....

So now they are mad at the guy who insisted it was theirs??? Ass bites!!
