    Gray Powell, the Apple Engineer who had the iPhone 4prototype stolen, was at a German beer garden at the time. His last Facebook post via the phone, according to Gizmodo's article, was "I underestimated how good German beer is."

    Lufthansa had just opened a beer garden in their Munich lounge, and I thought to myself: How cool would it be for Lufthansa to fly Gray to Munich? Get a break from recent events. Experience German beer in… Germany.
     
    Two days later, the execution was pushed to Twitter seeking out Gray and offering him a free business class flight to Munich.

    The effort was met with tons of positive comments, retweets, & was picked up by Gawker & ValleywagMashable, CNNCBS News... amongst others. It is estimated that all the media generated was valued at $1 million.
