I am sure any other company would have acted similarly if their prototype was pasted on the web
Talk about secrecy I worked on Estimating for the last 2 weeks a 750,000 state job which today at 2;30 is the deadline , I need estimates from the sub contractors as well. (Secrecy) part comes in that the trades don't want to revile their bids until the very last moment

Not really seeing all that much "pressure" based on this article, to be honest.
Regardless, it sure doesn't paint a very nice picture of the Gizmodo guys or of the person who found the phone. As for Apple, I'll agree with the statement that while there may have been a little payback included in their filing a police report, they certainly seem to have had every right to do so, and it would seem more than justified by the way some of the accused appear to have made efforts to hide evidence ...
the guy who originally found the phone knew exactly what he was doing and knowingly tried to avoid the police before he could capitalize and make some money. i have no sympathy for him or Gizmodo. if i was Apple i would have also notified the police and pressed charges. beyond that, it's a police matter. meh.
