Losing your iPad would be a source of anger and resentment for most people. But one Arkansas man describes his own stolen device as a “continuing fountain of entertainment,” thanks to the often bizarre pictures taken with the iPad that are posted to his iCloud photostream.
“It’s been a continuing fountain of entertainment for me,” Allen Engstram told KTHV. “It’s just like I’ll wake up one day and they’ll be new pictures there and I’m like oh my gosh, she has no idea.”
Engstram says he lost the iPad on a flight from Phoenix to Denver. He assumed that was the end of the story until one day his son asked Engstram’s wife about a strange photo that appeared in the family’s photo stream.
“He said mommy, who’s this? And of course she said, I have no idea who that is. It showed up on my phone too,” Engstram said. “After a while we figured out what was going on. That’s the person that has my iPad.”
That is funny.
I’d tell the guy whose IPAD was stolen to be careful about posting the pictures of the criminal. There is a number of liberal political groups that will rush to the aide of this dumb criminal.
Sounds like one of those Master Card ads:
Airline Ticket: $480
Stolen iPad: $1,000
Photo of you naked on your front porch (with your street address clearly visible): PRICELESS!
Presumably it should only a matter of time before the person is caught and this will become another “idiot criminal” story.
This is obviously a case for the MPAA or RIAA. Presumably copyright of the photos is owned by the thief. Perhaps they could sue the iPad owner for copyright infringement?
