The blog stated *we certainly cannot assume that this job listing lends credence to Apple losing an iPhone 5, but the timing is quite interesting.*

The last iPhone prototype was allegedly lost after a night of German beer drinking in a bar near Apple’s Cupertino headquarters by Apple engineer Gray Powell.
Recently the iPhone 5 prototype that went missing in late July in the Mission District of San Francisco – according to CNet may have been sold on Craigslist for US$200.00
