What happens when someone leaves a prototype of the new iPhone sitting on a bar? He gets an unofficial fan site, Facebook pages, and his name plastered on merchandise...all in the matter of a few hours.
Gizmodo was able to identify the man who lost a prototype of the next-generation iPhone at a bar in California, based on information found on the device. The blog reports that the man's name is Gray Powell and he works (worked?) at Apple's offices in central California.
Not to be confused with the guy who played Chad in the 2006 movie Hollywoodland, Gray Powell has already earned his name in the annals of tech history. And it has already begun.
The domain GrayPowell.com has already been registered and it is selling t-shirts and other clothes with a printed phrase that reads, "LOST: Next-gen iPhone."
In the first hour of the day, around midnight on April 20, Gray Powell was already the 5th most popular Google search.
No one knows for sure what has happened to Powell since the incident, but there's a good chance that Apple may have let him go. This is one of the biggest blunders in the company's history, unless we're being played for some huge PR stunt.
