Gym worker who found Motorola Droid Shadow gets fired

Fired over leaked smartphone pics
By Shane McGlaun from May 27, 2010 @ 12:26 CDT

Early this week some images of an unreleased Motorola handset called the Droid Shadow surfaced at Gizmodo. The handset had reportedly been left in a Verizon corporate gym when a gym employee found the device.




As the story goes, a friend of the worker sent pics and specs of the device to Gizmodo where they were put online. I thought at the time posting those pics was a bad move for the dude who found the device.


I was right as it turns out, the guy who found the device has now reportedly been fired. Oddly, the person who sent the pics to Giz still works there, but that could be short lived.
