Not sure if that's legit, but OTOH, I have no reason to specifically say it isn't.

That said... If it is legit, I'd think the law would apply to a search warrant based on information used in an article, not in the case of trying to find out where the journalist got the stolen property from. (I'm working on the assumption that once the original "finder" profited from not turning it into the police that it would be consider stolen property).

I wonder what are the chances of getting the computers/servers back without files missing or the drives corrupted?

I wonder if the computers are actually in the police evidence lockup or at Apple getting sanitised?

I think Apple should have the right to charge Gizmodo for possession of stolen property. The guy should have given it to the police. Though Apple should be less of a dick and use this free press to their advantage.

I disagree. The guy did return the phone as requested. Apple was fully in the wrong here.
