The only logical conclusions:
- Working at Apple must really drive people to drink.
- Apple needs a new motto for its iPhone campaign. May I suggest "More bars in more places"?
- Along with a new motto, I might also suggest breathalyzers and sobriety tests for its engineering team, or at the very least ankle monitors.
- Beware of that lime-marinated shrimp ceviche. It'll knock you on your ass.
Obviously this story requires a lot more firsthand investigative reporting -- so I'm heading to the bar. I'll let you know if any more wayward iPhones suddenly turn up. Set 'em up, Jose.
Is it really possible Apple could have lost two iPhone prototypes? Weigh in below or email me: email@example.com.
