This is an extreme example. Not everyone who steals a phone is a jail breaker, considering there are few out there in comparison to the everyday user and thief. I know for a fact the guy who stole my iPhone used it to watch "UP" on Netflix. After that I finally got to the Apple Store to have it wiped. He said it was just an iPod Touch now, without anything but the basic apps.
I didn't question the accuracy of the charges, just the timing of the story.
It was a hit piece, plain and simple. Apple's earnings were through the roof and the story was waiting in the wings until after the quarterly report.

That came about because of the collusion of the board and Sculley. As everyone else here stated previously, he's...
Technically that's true, but there are many, many lawsuits out here for "wrongful termination", even though it's an "at-will" state, which indicates "at-will" isn't as cut and dried as many would like to believe.
