Man Loses Pinky Over iPad

samzenpus posted more than 4 years ago | from the extreme-customer-demand dept.

Crime 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."

I wonder which he regrets losing more? (0)

The iPad or the half finger?

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.

That's at least as embarrassing as having to buy tampons for your wife ;)

Hrhr, captcha is "duties".

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.

I feel sorry for your wife. Grow up.

How would that apply to those of us on slashdot? Heck, I think even "girlfriend" woulda been a stretch... ;-)

He's lucky, it could have been worse. (3, Funny)

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

they have a picture of the guy that stole the iPad [thedenverchannel.com]

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?

Fucking negroid. They should work for what they desire like everyone else.

Similar thing happened to me, but it was my bike.

You fucking piece of white trash, that article didn't even mention the race of the attacker or the attacked.
There are plenty of us "negroids" out there who make more money than a cousin humping piece of trailer park garbage like you does!

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.

Though seeing as you can't buy an ipad without getting a contract, it could prove tricky, if at least not somewhat suspicious if someone comes into AT&T store and asks to activate service on it. "Where did you BUY this?" would have to be a question they get asked.

A huge company that can see when I log on just by knowing the computer's serial number? Something in my mind has a problem with that...

Hey it's that black guy who commits all of your crimes

Oh. That's why I fucking hate racism and niggers.

And he still won't have his finger back. Getting the iPad back would be the last of my worries at that point.

Purchase an iPad (1)

With him purchasing an iPad shows that he had already lost the Brain.

Ah, it's ok, he doesn't need it anymore! (1)

GNUALMAFUERTE (697061) | more than 4 years ago | (#31964050)

I mean, he can't multi-touch now ;)

Now I see why we call it that! (1)

laughingcoyote (762272) | more than 4 years ago | (#31975706)

Gives a whole new meaning to getting ripped off.
