iPhone 4G costs Gawker $20k in all, Rhapsody offline mode, Gray Powell offered free vacation
The world knows that Gizmodo and parent Gawker Media paid $5,000 for the iPhone HD or 4G prototype that was lost in a bar in California. Gawker head Nick Denton figures the whole thing cost him about $20,000 for the handset, bonuses, and bandwidth. The money made from the exclusive is estimated to be $200,000.
Rhapsody has been on the iPhone for a while now and the service has gained an urgent new feature. Users can now take advantage of an offline listening mode that caches music and lets you listen without an World Wide Web connection.
The Apple employee who lost the infamous iPhone HD prototype in a bar has been offered a free German holiday. The offer comes from Lufthansa airlines and whether I were My. Powell I’d want to be certain Steve Jobs wasn’t sending him by on a one way ticket.
