When a majority of cellphone thefts in the San Francisco Bay Area involved the iPhone, district attorney (DA) George Gascon asked an Apple government liaison to drop by, and explain what exactly makes the iPhone a hot commodity, and what is the company doing, in the area of anti-theft features.
Little did the DA realize that he had just invited the hyper-talkative Michael Foulkes, who Gascon recounts, spent a bulk of their one hour on talking much, speaking little. "It was incredible. He would just go on and on, one subject to the next. It was hard to follow. It was almost like someone who's been trained in the art of doing a lot of talking and saying nothing," said DA Gascon, in an interview with The San Francisco Examiner.
During the conversation, at least as the DA described it, Foulkes may have revealed that the next two generations of the iPhone were designed under the supervision of CEO Tim Cook's predecessor, the late Steve Jobs himself. Writes The Examiner,
Gascón said Foulkes discussed the long and laborious process of researching and producing a kill-switch technology for devices, and also said the next two generations of iPhones have already been developed. "They preceded Tim Cook," the district attorney said he was told of the future iPhones.
