Silicon Valley police are investigating what appears to be a lost
Apple iPhone prototype purchased by a gadget blog, a transaction
that may have violated criminal laws, a law enforcement official
told CNET on Friday.
Apple has spoken to local police about the incident and the
investigation is believed to be headed by a computer crime task
force led by the Santa Clara County district attorney’s office,
the source said. Apple’s Cupertino headquarters is in Santa Clara
County, about 40 miles south of San Francisco.
