Remains of the Day: Supersize me

It's a mega-giganta-humungo edition today, as we cover everything from Apple losing yet another prototype iPhone, to a neighborly Steve Jobs, to Tim Cook's email habits. Read along with the remainders for Wednesday, August 31, 2011 and help close out August in style.


To paraphrase my man Oscar Wilde: "To lose one unreleased prototype iPhone may be regarded as misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness." But according to CNet, that's exactly what happened. The scene of the crime? A bar, . This--presumably iPhone 5--prototype has not yet surfaced, although it reportedly may have been sold on Craigslist for $200. Huh. I wonder if that was the price a two-year contract.


Palo Alto resident Lisen Stromberg reminisces about Steve Jobs not as a technological genius, but as a neighbor. My personal favorite part, no joke: a story about Steve dressed as Frankenstein for Halloween. It's simply delightful in its un-Steveness.
