Apple iPhone HD and the Tale of a Human Error in a Bar on an Evening in March

April 20, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

For those among you who have been wondering how on earth could the next-generation phone from Apple be leaked, here’s how! It was, in fact, a mistake, from an Apple engineer who happened to down a few German ales. From what the guys at Gizmodo have been telling the tech world, the Apple employee who was enjoying a night out at Gourmet Haus Staudt, a bar in California’s Redwood City on March 18, happened to leave the device there merely by mistake.

The device, dressed up as an iPhone 3GS, was being given a real world test on the field in between drinks, and some how the drinks got better of him resulting in the whole episode. The rest, as you know, has appeared all over the Web and print, as stories of a lost, leaked and found iPhone HD.

The Apple Software Engineer, by the name of Gray Powell, is now at the receiving end of a tough Apple call. The tales of the next-gen phone started off from the bar and has been swung around by many. The disassembling of the phone for the world to see happened and now we all know what the new iPhone HD would be like, well ahead of a launch date that has not yet been scheduled.

Gizmodo is said to be looking at returning the prototype. But then Apple doesn’t have anything to reveal anymore. All details are out and being dissected. A mistake, an oversight and a huge leak just happened. Mistakes do happen. To err is, after all, human, don’t you think so?
