Brian Lam’s Email to Steve Jobs Regarding Gizmodo’s Stolen iPhone Prototype

OCR’d from today’s unsealed affidavit (PDF) by Jason Snell. I love how Lam is trying to get better access from Apple in the future while simultaneously extorting written admission that the unit was indeed Apple’s.

Also, Lam misreported the contents of his own email to Apple chief counsel Bruce Sewell. As published on Gizmodo, Lam’s email to Sewell read:

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 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.

P.S. I hope you take it easy on the kid who lost it. I don’t think he loves anything more than Apple except, well, beer.

Lam later edited the published version to omit the quip about beer. But according to the affidavit, the postscript, as sent to Sewell, in fact read:

P.S. I hope you take it easy on the kid who lost it. I don’t think he loves anything more than Apple except, well, beer. Maybe some spankings.

What a dick.
