New York
– Comedy Central’s "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" featured a
segment on Wednesday night taking Apple (NASD: AAPL) to task for its role in the search of
Gizmodo reporter Jason Chen’s home by police. Authorities seized equipment from
Chen as part of their investigation into a prototype iPhone 4G that was left in
a bar by an Apple employee, and discovered by a person who was paid $5,000 for
the device by Gizmodo, which published photos and details of the unreleased
iPhone. "It wasn’t supposed to be this way," remarked Stewart. "Microsoft
was supposed to be the evil one. But now, you guys are busting down doors in Palo Alto while
Commandant Gates is ridding the world of mosquitoes!"
