Police Sieze Computers Over Next Generation iPhone Prototype [news.bbc.co.uk]
Police in California have seized computers belonging to the editor of a gadget blog which was involved in the purchase of an iPhone prototype.
Gizmodo had admitted it paid $5,000 to an unnamed individual for the next generation device, which was reportedly left in a bar by an Apple employee.
Editor Jason Chen published photographs and videos of the phone last week.
Gizmodo may have violated a California law covering the appropriation of stolen property for personal benefit.
