One of the people I follow on Twitter also runs a website for Texas Rangers fans. His name is Adam Morris. He is also a lawyer. Much like myself he is also an out of shape lawyer. Yesterday he and his 6 year old son were at the Houston Zoo. As they were leaving, a man bumped into them and took their iPad from the backpack where it had been and ran off. Nothing they could do right then, but Adam managed to use one of those iPad tracker things and found the guy and his girlfriend at a bus stop several hours later. While talking to 911 on the phone, the man said he didn't want any trouble and handed over the iPad to Adam. I don't think there is anyway I would go after the guy. I would just wipe everything remotely and hope that the guy got some karmic retribution. Especially after the events of last week, I would think maybe the guy might pull a gun. He probably wouldn't, but do you want to take that chance. That tiny tiny chance?
If you are Victoria Beckham and have a problem with your iPad, this is what you do. Brooklyn broke his so Victoria went to the Apple store and told them Brooklyn broke his and she wanted a replacement. Without paying. She made it clear she was not going to pay. Yeah, she walked out of there with a new one. No charge. Adam might want to try that next time.
