Steve Jobs at D8 video: bloggers buying stolen iPhone HD/iPhone 4G property and extorting Apple

Steve Jobs comments on the lost/stolen iPhone HD/iPhone 4G prototype that turned up online. Jobs thinks it's an amazing story - theft, buying stolen property, extortion... he thinks there may be sex in there somewhere!

Jobs got a lot of advice saying he should let it slide, shouldn't go after a journalist because they (allegedly!) bought stolen property and tried to extort Apple. Jobs would rather quit. He considers it a matter of their core values.

Apple might be preparing a 10.7" multi-touch iTablet with 720p resolution, running the iPhone OS, for announcement in January and release in May/June 2010. That's just one of the rumors dropped by iLounge this morning, from a source they say was accurate about the most recent iPod nano, iPhone, and Chinese iPhone stories.

Like the iPhone and the iPod touch, iLounge's source claims both a 3G and non-3G version will be available, so users can weigh always-on connectivity vs. another monthly telco bill.

Gizmodo: More (and Less) on the Apple iTablet

Gizmodo honcho Brian Lam claims to have received a cryptic call with nebulous details on the much-rumored Apple iTablet, shedding light and casting in shadow at the same time. Highlights:

Gizmodo to AT&T Upgrade "Whiners": You Got Your Subsidy Last Year

AT&T and other carriers subsidize the upfront cost of the iPhone and other smartphones and make up the difference via guaranteed long term contracts/commitments. That's their business model, but it means they can't and won't give repeated subsidies until you've finished the associated contract terms. With many iPhone 3G owners -- still under contract -- eyeing the iPhone 3G S, and the non-subsidized price it brings with it, a fair amount of anger has been plasma-cannoned in AT&T's monstrous direction.
