    Tie the darn things to the field testers arms.



    I'm sure Steve would rather have it tethered to another part of his/her anatomy, which would make it even more unlikely to be left behind on a barstool (Ouch).

    Up bup bup. The carriers won't allow indecent tethering.

    Just pack all prototypes with a powerful explosive that can be remotely detonated when lost. 'Remote Wipe' would really have teeth then. Plus this would probably dissuade people stealing them once word got out.



    "Look what I found on the bar! It's an iPhone prototype ... aaaaggghhh." Room clears in ten seconds ...

    Trouble is, Apple will have to find a destruct technology that is small and thin (plastique?), and doesn't drain the battery (at least until activated).



    Hey, Mission Impossible has had that technology for decades. "This iphone will self-destruct in ten, nine, eight ......"

    No need to hire another security manager. Apple already has too many secrets and security.



    I say; just bar the drunkards from the sensitive equipments. It is as simple as that. I will understand if someone forgets a products at his girlfriend's house or at the park with the kids.



    What are these forgetters? Barflies?

    I just had a horrible feeling they're going to come up with "Cheers Rebooted" and lost iPhones will be a big part of the first season. \
