The Daily Reacharound: New iPhone Reveal Staged?


Posted April 19, 2010 - By Jake Gaskill

The Daily Reacharound: New iPhone Reveal Staged?The big tech news today is that Apple’s next generation iPhone has been revealed, but not in a way befitting of the iPhone and Apple's status. And while the official story (so far) is that the prototype iPhone just happened to be found in a bar, supposedly after the entrusted owner left it behind, some people are questioning the whole ordeal. Like ShaggyMetalHead:

“It might just be a marketing ploy to raise hype for the phone. It will get alot more of a response if there is a ‘lost phone recovered’ by some random person than Apple just releasing a press statement with the specs. Consumers feel as if they got one by on Apple by thinking that they got the information by luck.”

This thought crossed my mind as well (I especially like the idea that it would make people feel like they “got one by on Apple”), but then I realized that Apple doesn’t need any help from a fake controversy to get people’s attention, especially when it comes to something like the next generation iPhone. Having said that, I have zero connections to the situation, so I could be totally wrong. What do you think?
