Sage Wallower, the Middleman


Hogan, however, had help in finding a buyer for the phone. CNET has learned that Sage Robert Wallower, a 27-year-old University of California at Berkeley student, contacted technology sites about what is believed to be Apple’s next-generation iPhone. […] CNET’s sources said Wallower, a former Navy cryptologic technician who transferred to UC Berkeley two years ago, acted as a go-between. […]

In an in-person interview with CNET at his home in Oakland on Thursday, Wallower said, “I’m not the person who found it. I didn’t see it or touch it in any manner. But I know who found it.” He declined to identify anyone else, however, in part because he said conversations with law professors had convinced him that Apple was a “legal juggernaut.”

“I need to talk to a lawyer,” Wallower said. “I think I have already said too much.”
