The other day, CNET reported a story about Apple losing another iPhone prototype, reportedly at a San Francisco tequila bar, that led to a home in San Francisco being searched. Quoting an anonymous source, CNET says, "When San Francisco police and Apple's investigators visited the house..."
Several other sources picked up the story over the next day or two but were unconvinced, in part because they contacted SFPD which claimed there was no investigation or home visit. Today, SFWeekly is reporting that the man whose home was searched confirms that they had badges and claimed to be SF Police.
If this is true, what should happen? Should the "cops" be charged with impersonation? Something else? Should Apple be fined for allowing its investigators do use such tactics?
