This is something really crazy going on with Apple. Either Apple is doing to increase the market share or sales growth or they got some weird people who cannot handle stuff properly. Last year we cam across a news that the Designer lost iPhone 4 prototype in a bar and now the same thing is happening after a year but at different Country and the same place which is a “BAR“.
Last time when iPhone 4 was lost in Bar, it was offered a price of $5,000 by some Gadget Blog to purchase it. But this time things have changed. This time it was sold on Craigslist for $200. The person who bought it might not be ready to reveal about the specs, what iOS it is on and more details due to Apple will catch him for that.

Like always Apple has not yet announced the release date of iPhone 5/4S for public,but the rumors are indicating the release of the next Gen iPhone by the end of September and release to be held in first week of October.
According to CNET:
A day or two after the phone was lost at San Francisco’s Cava 22, which describes itself as a “tequila lounge” that also serves lime-marinated shrimp ceviche, Apple representatives contacted San Francisco police, saying the device was priceless and the company was desperate to secure its safe return, the source said.
Apple electronically traced the phone to a two-floor, single-family home in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood, according to the source.
When San Francisco police and Apple’s investigators visited the house, they spoke with a man in his twenties who acknowledged being at Cava 22 on the night the device went missing. But he denied knowing anything about the phone. The man gave police permission to search the house, and they found nothing, the source said. Before leaving the house, the Apple employees offered the man money for the phone no questions asked, the source said, adding that the man continued to deny he had knowledge of the phone.
Looks like Apple traced the wrong house and a wrong family. Poor Apple. Valle said that he will cooperate with them and will report them if he founds any information about the bar. He also added that:
“I guess I have to make my drinks a little less strong,” Valle said.
This is really embarrassing for Apple. They lost another Gen iPhone once again after a year.
