Agreed, if I know WW, wheel's post above is going to get skimmed over and people will continue talking about how this guy is screwed and deserves it.
Having read the blog entry when it was first posted I believe that they did try to return the phone. In which case I don't see how you could consider it theft.
Apple is a PR nightmare lately. They should have given the guy a great big check for the free advertising and left it at that. The blog entry didn't give away anything important, it was just enough to get iPhone fans excited, and even if it had, they have only themselves and their employee to blame.
