    I still think this is all a publicity stunt! Ya right, I hope this will finally shut up the conspiracy theorist! What Chen had was iPhone prototype not a publicity stunt by Apple. Chen, don't drop the soap.

    Its not a plain everyday iPhone, we're talking TRADE SECRETS.

    Jason Chen was in possession of a STOLEN prototype iPhone and decided it would be a brilliant idea to plaster it all over the internet. I'd be willing to bet they seized the computers to see what Chen had done with the iPhone while it was in his possession and if he tried to contact the known owner (Gray Powell).

    The sheild law only applies when they want to know who the source is.
    Seriously Man?? Apple is the largest tax payer in Cupertino, One of the most powerful and influential technology companies on the planet. You don't think they have the ability to make things happen??

    Remember what happened to the guy in China that lost a prototype?
    he committed "Suicide"

    No I'm not implying that. I'm simply saying a company like Apple knows what's going on in those factories and it's employees. You don't think Apple wasn't 100% aware of everything that happened to that guy?

    Likely just aware enough for plausible deniability. Apple's private security in China gets results, and that's what they are concerned about. Understanding the means to the ends just becomes a liability for Apple.

    Have you heard about the way Apple's private security carries themselves in China? They couldn't get away with what they do there in a lot of industrialized countries.

    Agreed,If Jason Chen was in China it would be a different story.

    I dont see anything wrong with what apple did,if you had a billion $$$ corporation like they do.you would want to protect it.the only problem i see here is that we give too much info on the internet,he did not have to show his face on the video or tell people where and how he got the phone.just make a video,dont show your face or any details as to where it came from and apple would not be able to come after you or anyone,i hope we learned something from this stop putting too much info out there on the web.
