Brian J. Hogan has been identified as a 21-YEAR-OLD Californian man who found and sold an Apple iPhone prototype to tech blog Gizmodo.This action of him force the tech world to focus on him this morning.

Hogan says although he was paid by tech site Gizmodo, he believed the payment was for allowing the site exclusive access to review the phone. Gizmodo emphasized to him “that there was nothing wrong in sharing the phone with the tech press,” according to his attorney Jeffrey Bornstein.
He also regrets not doing more to try to return the next-generation iPhone to its owner, an Apple software engineer who left the device behind in a bar, the magazine Wired said on its website.

On April 19, Gizmodo, which is owned by Gawker Media, published a bombshell story about the iPhone prototype, which had apparently been left at the Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City. It was left behind by an Apple engineer named Gray Powell.

According to the statement from his lawyer, Hogan was in the bar with friends when another patron handed him the phone after finding it on a nearby stool. The patron asked Hogan if the phone belonged to him, and then left the bar. Hogan asked others sitting nearby if the phone belonged to them, and when no one claimed it, he and his friends left the bar with the device.

Previoulsy we have seen the iPhone 4G prototype leaked before the Apple’s annoucement. This iPhone 4G was left in the bar by a young Apple engineer. The device was then sold to Gimodo which is a technology blog for $5000 which bombarded the internet with the pictures on iPhone 4G prototype. Apple then asked the device back by taking the case to police. Authorities then rraided the editor of Gizmodo and did their investigation process.
It has been reported that people disguising as Apple representatives visited Hogan’s home but a roomamte refused to let them in.

Jeffery Bornstein defended Hogan by saying that “He regrets his mistake in not doing more to return the phone,” and saying “kind of young man that any parent would be proud to have as their son.”
Hogan has been investigated but not charged with a crime and he is fully cooperating with authorities. The Lawyer told that Hogan’s family has moved to unknown place to avoid media rage.
