Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne in 1976. Apple is a company that built hype around their product through secrecy and controlled leaks to the media. Gizmodo recently bought a stolen and unreleased iPhone, then posted pictures and a video on the Internet.
The stolen phone belonged to Apple engineer Gray Powell and he was “devastated” by what happened. Wozniak himself decided to have some fun with the situation by wearing a funny T-shirt that says I went drinking with Gray Powell and all I got was a lousy iPhone prototype. “I’d laugh if the same thing were done to me,” said Woz in an e-mail communication with CNET.
