iPhone 5 Prototype Goes Missing In a Bar!

CNET recently reported that a new version of Apple's coveted iPhone went missing in a bar in what reminds us of a similar embarrassing incident that happened last year. Reports say that the Apple employee lost the prototype in a tequila bar in the San Francisco Mission District in July.

There is still no trace of the iPhone being recovered. Apple electronically tracked the device to a San Francisco home whose resident claims that he knows nothing about the phone. For all that can be guessed, the phone may have been auctioned for a few hundred dollars at online trading site eBay. The report incited ventures whether the missing iPhone was a next-generation about to be disclosed by Apple in September or October.

News about yet another undisclosed iPhone model missing in a bar came just days after prosecutors made up their mind not to charge Gizmodo technology bloggers who got hold of a lost iPhone 4 prototype last year. District attorney's office in San Mateo County, California, stated that criminal charges were filed against a man who supposedly discovered the iPhone 4 prototype in a bar and another man who negotiated a deal to sell that prototype to Gizmodo.

After getting hold of the iPhone for about $5000 from that man, Gizmodo lost no time in publishing its pictures and details online. The man later claimed that he discovered it in a bar.
