It's quite possible it's an intentional leak as well. Apple has been know to do sneaky things.

This was not intentional. The guy got drunk, lost his prototype iPhone at bar (which was sneakily disguised in a 3GS case), then Gizmodo paid $5,000 for it. Apple is writhing mad, with Cease and Desist letters and a formal letter saying "We want our phone back". The guy will get fired, no doubt.

I've found I'm a fan of Rick's dry sense of humor, and sarcasm in general. :)

And I would tend to agree, Apple is too focused on money and control rather than the customer.

Or mysteriously commit suicide, like the other one did.

And all I was thinking was how nice that iPhone is O.O

Don't worry, you aren't alone.

I'm still kind of irked they didn't make the screen slightly bigger. What's the point of cramming 960x640 into a 3.5" screen?

And about the guy who got drunk--I suppose you shouldn't inebriate yourself to such a degree when you're carrying a secret prototype around, but at the same time, Apple should just go along with it for the publicity, and Gizmodo should post things other than, oh I don't know, the name and photo of the guy who lost the phone.

There I was thinking it was some teenager who only just learnt driving but it turns out to be a 62 year old woman!

I just received my options for GCSE and I'm not sure what to choose or even what I want to be when I'm older which doesn't really help either!:P

I'm considering taking AS Level Computing and GCSE Economics as my "options" and the mandator subjects include the likes of Maths, English, Science and RE, DT and Games along with 1 language =O (never a strong point) but I still don't know what I should choose for my third option.

Also, has anyone done AS Level computing or GCSE Economics, what's it like?
