Tech: The poor guy who lost the iPhone prototype likes German beer

  • iPhone update. We think we’ve identified the sorry Apple engineer who left the next-gen phone at the bar. Calling in a min.
  • Gawker Media founder Nick Denton • Regarding that iPhone prototype they just paid $5,000 for. The guy, who Gizmodo just wrote an article on, is a 27-year-old Apple software engineer named Gray Powell. Poor guy’s last Facebook update from the bar was, “I underestimated how good German beer is.” As famous last words go, perhaps not very revealing, but ones we can totally stand behind. We feel for you, Gray Powell. If you’re in D.C., call us. We’ll buy you a … rum and coke. Because beer is bad luck for you. source

Tech: Don’t let Apple get you down, Adobe. Bask in the CS5 glow.

  • Just in time for that Flash-to-iPhone converter! Adobe finally launched its Creative Suite 5 today, which features (among a myraid list of things which we could spend hours posting) 64-bit support for Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects; Adobe’s BrowserLab Web testing suite; support for many popular CMSes directly within Dreamweaver; and some feature that (heartbreakingly) allows you to save Flash apps as iPhone apps. source
