The story behind the stolen iPhone model is as follows. An employee of Apple Company left the prototype model of iPhone 4G accidently at a restaurant. Eventually the prototype ended up in the hands the restaurant owner who sold it off to Gizmodo.com. Eventually Gizmodo dissected the very inch and bit of the iPhone in which they posted various videos and screenshots of the prototype. Now the story has ended up on a search warrant, which Apple has long been pressing, to search for the lost iPhone prototype at Gizmodo.com’s CEO’s house.
Neglecting iPhone Search Warrant
Now the media has requested to make a search warrant for stolen case of apple iPhone model in Gizmodo editor Jason Chen’s house. When the police entered the house and tried to cease his computers, Chen came and stopped the search done by the media and police people. The judge Stephen hall rejected against the judgment given by the previous judge who gave search warrant and did not allow the media persons to search the stolen
iPhone in Jason’s house.
The judge who is involved in this case has sealed the information and important documents that have been raised against the stolen prototype. Moreover documents relating to the iPhone 4G have also not been allowed for screening by the judge. The earlier warrant enabled the police to have a complete look at Gizmodo editor’s house. They found those sealed documents and said to reveal the documents that the police wanted. But they refused to open the secret documents and did not allow the persons to continue the further process.
Securing the warrant
The reason behind the sealing of those documents is not to alert the two persons by announcing their name to media. The prosecutors argued against the case that if any documents or any information related has been released they have full rights to safer the documents with them until the case gets over.
In this stolen case of the iPhone prototype if Jason Chen allows the persons to take up the search in his house, it is absolutely possible to prove that no crime had been occurred by Gizmodo and the police will not justify that they refused to go on with the search warrant.
The police who are pressing for the search warrant have seized some electronic devices and computers and other evidences related in this case. They felt, by seizing these items they would surely announce it as a crime, since Gizmodo had breached protocol by releasing confidential information regarding a corporate product. Finally Gizmodo editor concluded that it is an invalid search process and he added that was not involved in any criminal case. Overall, the only thing that we can draw is that there have been a lot of activities involved in this case by revealing much information against Gizmodo editor.
