Well its taken off auction when a higher power, namely Apple, intervened. However the mysterious prototype did fetch a good $70,000 from bids but we guess the owner was looking to hit the magical 6 digit mark. Well no marks will be reached now because the gig is officially off. The seller of the device also revealed that the antenna was held in place with two magnets – a MagSafe-like connection, which would simply come off if knocked off or bumped. Still no intentions from the seller as what he’s going to do with it but he will be angry with himself for not selling it for $70,000."
