Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has taken to liberty of making light of the serious incident where an Apple employee left an iPhone prototype at a bar and the finders sold it to the blog Gizmodo. That incident has reportedly prompted a police investigation.
CNET reports that Wozniak sent around a photo to his friends where he is wearing a T-shirt that says, “I went drinking with Gray Powell and all I got was a lousy iPhone prototype.” Wozniak is drinking a beer and holding an iPhone in his hands.
Powell was the unlucky Apple engineer who lost the prototype, which is the basis for a future iPhone model. Apple typically guards its designs under a veil of secrecy, since its competitors would no doubt love to get a head start in cloning its products. While that’s serious stuff, Wozniak is known for his humor and practical jokes.
It will be interesting to see if the other Steve (Jobs) has a sense of humor. The tech industry certainly needs more of it. [photo credit: CNET]
