Lady Loses iPhone, Laptop, Gets Mocked on Own Facebook Page

A lady in the UK had her gear bag stolen, including her iPhone, laptop, and Nintendo DS, and to rub salt on her wounds, the thief decided to mock her on her own Facebook page:

"I have the laptop, phones ok but a bit scratched itll do, tv was rubbish so I left it , ds was a bonus, now to the porn shop, thankyou toshiba is my favourite make".

While we hope the thief gets every ounce of karma (and justice) returned to him/her, we also echo Gizmodo's hope that everyone reading this takes a moment to enable the passcode lock (and Remote Wipe if you're an Exchange or MobileMe user) on the iPhone, and BIOS/Login passwords on the laptop. An ounce of prevention beats a pound of curses later...
