Cybercops raid Gizmodo editor's home and take computers after iPhone story.

In response to a recent Gizmodo story about an iPhone prototype found left behind at a bar, police in Silicon Valley raided the home of a Gizmodo editor.  They charged him with possession of stolen goods (apparently "forgotten" equals "stolen") and took four computers as evidence.  They were informed that it's illegal to confiscate the property of a journalist, but proceeded anyway.
