I know we were all young and dumb once, but any young person who documents their crimes on social media should be locked away for life in order to protect the gene pool.

I don't think this is a case of someone documenting their crimes on social media so much as someone who doesn't know that photosyncing with iCloud is activated on the iPad.

How does anyone get any kind of iThing and not activate the "Find my iThing" feature? The stolen device is obviously connected to some kind of network or he wouldn't be getting the PhotoStream on his phone. If he had turned on that feature, he'd just about have the freakin' street address where the device is located.

Why not link to more of the photos?  I'm sure the power of the intarwebs could have this solved within hours.

Anyone not bright enough to wipe their stolen equipment clean immediately isn't worthy anyway.

That won't help with LoJack or someone who gets Hell to freeze and a cell company to trace the signal, but will eliminate just about every other way to track down a stolen phone/pad, since Apple happily registers stolen serial numbers under new accounts.

I lost my first digital camera on a plane.  Took stuff out of my carryon to get the spare battery for my Libretto and, apparently, forgot to put the camera back.  This was back when the lowest digital point-and-shoot cost $500 so it was kind of a big deal.  I called the airline and, of course, there was no camera found on the plane.  But I know it was because I'd taken out the compact-flash card to transfer my vacation pics to the computer while I was on the plane.  And I'd been bumped to first class and had a pretty cool musician as a seatmate.  He didn't seem like the type to go rooting around under seats looking for loot.

What I'm saying is I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out the thief is part of the crew that cleans planes between flights.  That's where I'd start showing that picture around if I were serious about getting the ipad back.

If it's phoning home with images, check the picture metadata.  If GPS is on you'll have a house number in mere minutes.  If it's off, you might still get close.

I  agree with your comment, unless she is some bag lady or invisible homeless person but yeah he should of put out more photos, if anybody that knows her owns a computer she should be found. Of course still no guarantee he will get the iPad back.

Pop quiz, hotshot.  You lose your $500 iPad, and a couple of days later photos of an incredibly hot chick in various states of undress and playfulness start popping up on your stream.  The pictures are getting more and more graphic.  You have tracking software so you have somewhat of an ability to locate it, but the tracking software will cease to function in 24 hours.

A place I worked at years ago did mostly PC service (like everyone else). But, every once in a great while we would get iStuff. There's just something about apple products. Merely touching them makes me feel skeevy.

Are there functioning adults out there that really think "finders keepers" is a thing? Also speaking from direct experience, buying something "in good faith" that turns out to stolen can result in much more trouble than you may imagine.

Granted, if the guy hasn't reported it stolen (and it doesn't sound like he has) then it isn't stolen.

I'd like to add that anyone who turns off location tracking for whatever tinfoil hat reason they may choose deserves whatever they get when they lose the device they deliberately rendered untrackable. Which is nothing.

So, if the woman who has it now bought it on good faith from someone who found/stole it, is anyone committing any wrongdoing by making the photos public? Does the guy have any duty to de-auth the device on cloud sync?

I bought my first iPod from a pawn shop for 30 bucks, the dude that hocked it etched his name in the back too. The thing still works to this day (though it doesn't hold a charge for long). Totally legit.

I'm not sure what the law would say about all the music it came with though, never did wipe the thing, just checked it out as is and got another one for my tunes, that thing was loaded with mostly good stuff!

Unfortunately the old "Finders keepers, losers weepers" defense wont hold up in court. If you take something that doesn't belong to you it's theft, regardless of circumstance.

With a good enough lawyer, she could get the guy and his family for invasion of privacy- and posting private pictures of her on the internet.

She doesn't know the ipad is stolen. Even if the name isn't scratched off, someone could have told her it was a 3rd or 4th hand ipad.

In fact, if she happened to go to the apple site and check warranty/ support for info about it, she pretty much has a slam dunk case against the guy for posting her images on the internet.


New way to "make" money:

Steal ipad, check the apple site for updates (from public location), ask if the ipad is stolen, if it is reported stolen, have a 3rd party turn it into police.

If not, leave the old connections to other devices on it, take "compromising" images of self (or a 3rd party), wait for images to appear on internet, get lawsuit happy.

If you end up with something, and you know who it belongs to and could return it but don't, that's theft. I realized this when I was a kid, and saw a man who had just come out of a bar climb into his pickup, dropping a wad of cash on the street. My first impulse was to wait until he drove away, and it would be mine free and clear. Almost as quickly, I realized that would be stealing; I knew it was his, and I knew he didn't mean to drop it on the ground. It would have been no different than stealing it out of his wallet, except there would have been almost no chance of my getting caught. I ran over to his truck, and waved him down to keep him from driving away. He was confused until I bent down and picked up the wad of money and handed it to him. He said he'd like to give me a reward, but the smallest bill he had was a twenty. This was probably 1980 (minimum wage was three thirty five an hour), twenty bucks was a lot of money. I told him not to worry about it. Make no mistake, money was hard to come by as a kid. I worked a couple of hours a day on average to make about thirty five dollars a month by delivering newspapers with my bicycle. That had no bearing on whether I would keep money that was not mine
