iPhone – I LOVE THIS STORY, BUT I FEEL SOMETHING IS MISSED.

Hi, Everyone!

I know this story already fucked up all TV’s & Radio Stations, It’s everywhere in the internet. But what I feel is that this Apple prototype is bullshit=) Same like all the story. It reminds me NIN & Trent Reznor’s PR campaign about one of the last albums – “Year Zero”. As marketing guy I feel this is just campaign.

Those, who do not know about what I’m talking, just read this:

San Francisco – Gadget blog Gizmodo has posted photos and details about what it says is Apple’s (NASD: AAPL) next iPhone, the 4G, that its parent company Gawker Media reportedly purchased from someone, who found it on the floor in a bar in Redwood City, California. Apple is expected to release its next iPhone model this summer, and if the device obtained by Gizmodo is the real deal, the 4G iPhone will include a front-facing video chat camera; improved still camera with flash; micro-SIM card; improved display; a possible secondary mic for noise cancellation; and new, metallic buttons for volume, power and mute.

Gizmodo, which disassembled the purported new iPhone, also reports that the battery will be 16% larger, and that the housing abandons the curved edges of previous iPhone models for a flatter, squarer design.

AFTER THAT THIS GUY GOT A LETTER FROM APPLE!!! JUST NEXT DAY!!!=)

Well, how can I explain this? I got some interesting calls today. It was Apple. And they wanted their phone back.

This phone was lost, and then found. But from Apple’s perspective, it could have been considered stolen. I told them, all they have to do to get it back is to claim it—on record. This formal request from Apple’s legal department is that claim. It proves—if there was any doubt in your mind—that this thing is real.

Here’s my reply:

Bruce, thanks.
Here’s Jason Chen, who has the iPhone. And here’s his address. You two should coordinate a time.

[Blah Blah Blah Address]

Happy to have you pick this thing up. Was burning a hole in our pockets. Just so you know, we didn’t know this was stolen [as they might have claimed. meaning, real and truly from Apple. It was found, and to be of unproven origin] when we bought it. Now that we definitely know it’s not some knockoff, and it really is Apple’s, I’m happy to see it returned to its rightful owner.

What I can say???

And since this was the only missing piece of the puzzle, we have now both extinguished any doubts of its origin but also, we get to give the phone back. *warm, fuzzy, huggy feelings of legal compliance*

(Our legal team told us that in California the law states, “If it is lost, the owner has three years to reclaim or title passes to the owner of the premises where the property was found. The person who found it had the duty to report it.” Which, actually, the guys who found it tried to do, but were pretty much ignored by Apple. )

I’m sad to see it go. We reasoned this pretty little piece of hardware is probably something we’ll see again some time soon, but who knows exactly when. For some of us, that date can’t come soon enough.

GUYS! MY CONCLUSION – I JUST DO NOT BELIVE IN THIS BULLSHIT!
WANT TO SAY, THAt THIS GUY REPLY SHOULD HAVE BEEN:

Fuck Me, I’m Famous!

  1. Apple gets exactly the kind of publicity that make people attach to their products emotionally =)

    This is one of them, and it doesn’t matter if this was accidental or purposeful, they done a great job with it=)
