iPhone Law and Order - TSA Recording and Find My iPhone Locating
In the justice system of internet zaniness, iPhones are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. Apple, who creates cool technology, and the badapps people who put it to use. These are their stories...
First up, reader Matt pointed us towards an article on CNN.com where a passenger traveling within the US, carrying over $4000 in cash, was held for questioning and all he had to defend himself was:
a pocket edition of the U.S. Constitution and an iPhone capable of making audio recordings. And he used them.
I had just activated the brand-new Find My iPhone service.
(Note: while he recovered his iPhone, he might just as easily have run into Hannibal Lecter. "Hero complex" is personal protection faux-pas 101. These stories are presented for interest-sake only. No one at TiPb or SPE advises anyone to put their life in jeopardy for a gadget.)
