    Assuming it wasn't a marketing stunt (I doubt it since HTC got some negative publicity for taking action) I believe both the kids parents got fired because they were supposedly both Engineers for HTC.

    I thought it really was a Leak but after the drama on Twitter, now I think it was a marketing stuff.

    which is very sad.... had the kid produced a nice YouTube video and boosted sales, HTC would have given his dad a raise or promotion! instead, he produced a video that was incomprehensible and painful to watch. It was like watching the mating ritual of dung beetles produced by a 5-year-old.

    I doubt they would have treated the situation any better just based on the quality of the video. When they have millions set up in advertising and all that crap they can't have employees going around breaking NDA's and leaving their phones lying around. Sucks for the kid but I can completely understand why the fired em.

    Eh, it's the guys fault. Why he gave his son a prereleased phone to use which is highly "Secret" is his own fault.
