A blogger who posted pictures and details of a lost iPhone prototype has given up his computer, digital camera and cell phone to law enforcement.

A special computer-crime task force made up of different law enforcement agencies searched Gizmodo blogger Jason Chen's house and car, according to a statement and search warrant documents provided by Gizmodo.


The warrant says the computer and other devices may have been used to commit a felony.

Apple did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
