So, I guess Google doesn’t get everything right. Well, we kind of already knew that because of the whole privacy issue after the Google Buzz launch, and then again when they admitted they were taking pictures of all our houses and stealing data from our home WIFI connections, “by accident”, as they were mapping all the streets in the world, but those are both entirely different stories.

Apparently, there is another iPhone 4G roaming the wild. Video and pictures of another iPhone 4G were found again, but this time on a website from Vietnam.
Apple, well known for their tight security appears to now have let two phones get out of their hands. With the iPhone release reportedly less than one month away, what else is there for us to learn? Usually we go into these Apple events full of anticipation, however, unless Apple has a very well staged hoax going on, we now know an awful lot about the newest addition to the iPhone family.
Now that the Droid Incredible launch is over, we look forward to one of the next two major releases expected for June. Most of us know about the potential for an iPhone 4G launch possibly in June, but the other big 4G launch is the Sprint EVO. Likely release dates mentioned are June 6th or June 13th.
I’m sure you all can guess what the big story of this week is. Gizmodo ran an exclusive on a phone that had been lost, found, purchased, dissected, sought out by its original owner, and then finally returned.
We’ve written a couple of times in the last few days about a subject that the tech world has been abuzz about, the lost iPhone 4G that was found in a bar in the San Jose area. On Monday, Gizmodo announced that they had the phone and ran an exclusive on their site which brought them 10 million hits in one day.
The AP announced later that Nick Denton, the owner of Gawker, the parent company to Gizmodo, paid $5000 to get the phone that was found in the San Jose bar. According to Gizmodo, they tore the phone apart and found the Apple name stamped all over the internal components. They then declared that this phone was the next iPhone.
The conversation which started during the early part of this past weekend about the lost then found Apple iPhone 4G or HD model has begun again as Gizmodo has been able to get their hands on the phone that was found on the floor of some bar. They have had the phone about a week now (apparently, the phone was not found this past weekend, but the story just came out then) and have given it a thorough once over and have reported back to us that they believe it is indeed an iPhone with a lot of cool upgrades.
Within the last few hours, there has been breaking news about a phone that was apparently found on the floor of a San Jose bar inside of an iPhone 3G case. As information and pictures emerged, the internet, various tech sites, and Twitter came to life in discussions over this phone. Headlines read “iPhone 4G: Is this it?” It was tweeted and retweeted like crazy; admittedly, we at DViceNews took part in the conversation ourselves. It’s kind of fun, right? I mean, everyone gets so excited and the tweets and comments fly around at rapid speeds. It is entertaining to watch tech fans argue and fuss over such topics as whether or not someone from Apple might have dropped a phone that is currently in production and then left it on the floor of a random bar somewhere. Never let it be said that we geeks don’t take our tech and gadgets seriously.
