Gizmodo got their hands on the iPhone 4, months before any other blog or news site did. They claimed someone had ‘found’ it at a bar and handed it to them.
Good news for Gizmodo: It will not be charged in the lost iPhone 4 case, it says.
If you’ll recall, Gizmodo ended up with the iPhone 4 months before any other publication thanks to a tipster finding the phone in a bar. There was some dispute over how “found” it really was. Was the phone stolen? And either way, was it legal for Gizmodo to pay a tipster to deliver the phone? Jay Yarow/Business Insider.
