Which Apple Employee Lost the iPhone 4G – Gray Powell

Gizmodo has posted some background information about how they obtained the iPhone 4G prototype and who lost it in the first place.

The Gourmet Haus Staudt. A nice place to enjoy good German ales. And if you are an Apple Software Engineer named Gray Powell and you get one too many beers, it’s also a nice place to lose the next-generation iPhone.

The 27-year-old Powell—a North Carolina State University 2006 graduate and talented amateur photographer—is an Apple Software Engineer working on the iPhone Baseband Software, the little program that enables the iPhone to make calls.

On the night of March 18, he was enjoying the fine imported ales at Gourmet Haus Staudt, a nice German beer garden in Redwood City, California. He was happy. The place was great. The beer was excellent. “I underestimated how good

German beer is,” he typed into the next-generation iPhone he was testing on the field, cleverly disguised as an iPhone 3GS. It was his last Facebook update from the secret iPhone. It was the last time he ever saw the iPhone, right before he abandoned it on bar stool, leaving to go home.

Hit the link below to continue the story and read about their phone conversation with Powell. Unfortunately, Gizmodo mentions nothing about how they actually obtained the device, how much they paid, or what Apple is saying.

Poor guy…

A Mozilla Browser Is Coming to iPad, but It’s Not Firefox(0)

Because Apple won’t allow any browser technology besides Webkit on iOS, Mozilla can’t bring Firefox to Apple’s mobile devices. But instead of ignoring the platform completely, they’re working on Junior: a Webkit-based browser that eschews tabs and the standard URL bar in favor of a new UI.
