This is Your Corporate Police State

Apple enlists police aid in home raid


Okay, Apple, I get it. I know your trinkets are invaluable and if anyone were to get ahold of the latest version of one before its release, some of the sensation of the iPhone 5's world debut would be diverted from you to some third party. And we can't have that. You like to be in control of your branding to an infinite degree. You like to run a watertight ship. 

But does anyone else think it's a little weird that Apple has the power to enlist the help of the police in tracking down a leaked prototype? That, aided by police officials, they can search through your home and personal property without a warrant?
