California Cops Go After Gizmodo

This morning, David Carr detailed how Gizmodo made its iPhone scoop into a story of intrigue, fueled by questions about how they got it, and who lost it, and how much they paid for it, and whether or not Gawker Media will be prosecuted for buying it.

Well, the plot thickens.

California’s Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team seized four computers and two servers from the house of Gizmodo editor Jason Chen on Friday night, while he was out having dinner with his wife. (The cops bashed in the door, but told Mr. Chen he can get reimbursed for that.)
