It is a publicity stunt but not original since they did the same thing with the iPhone 4 last year.

That is what I thought when I found out the "leaked" iPhone5 feature. It keeps that public on their toes and more publicity for them.

You Really Think This is Accidental?

One thing Apple knows how to do properly is market their products. They know that "losing" a popular product in advance of its release creates a major buzz, and lengthens the lines at their stores of Appleites waiting to get one on the day of release.

Apple is a cult and they know how to play their followers.

I think that this is becoming more of a gimmick than a real event. Though we are not at liberty to say what is the real score. But losing the iPhone for the second straight year? I mean common, I would have though that they would have employed stricter measures concerning that, but apparently not. Or was it in relation to Steve Jobs resigning from Apple? I do not think so.

Apple Over-stepping their Rights?

From Apple's prepared statement - "The two Apple employees met with the resident and then went into the house to look for the lost item," it said. "The Apple employees did not find the lost item and left the house."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
