Man Loses Pinky Over iPad 23

SocietyoftheFist writes "William R. Jordan was robbed of his iPad right after he bought it and worse yet he lost part of his finger in the process. He was holding on to the bag so tightly that when the thief ripped the bag free he took the skin off the tip of his pinky finger. Doctors had to amputate more than half the finger because he had lost so much tissue."

    Some people would pay an arm and a leg for the iPad.

  • Heard about this on the radio. Apparently he didn't even want it for himself, he was buying it for a friend in Canada.

    That's a real tough break.

        Buy one each of the PMS meds (Midol, pampren, etc) to the tune of about 7-8 bottles of pills and set it all on the counter and tel the clerk, "If that doesn't fix her she is frequen broke!" Seems to cut down on the number of times you are ask to go pick up that kind of stuff.

    He could have kept the iPad and lost his balls in the process.

    At Apple Stores don't the know the serial number of every item they sell, even without registering? Couldn't he just go back to the store, report it stolen to Apple, and Apple can track and see when someone logs on with it?

      They would have the sn of the computer and you can report stolen serial numbers to apple, but unless the new owner attempts to register it, apple won't know where it is. Simply using the ipad, or even activating service on it, does not require the sn of the computer.
