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
