Unless you won it on Beezid, that's a pretty pricey thing to lose. And even if you got it at a huge discount, it still has all your files and personal information on it...heck, it's yours, and that's reason enough to want it back.
Now, when situations like this come up at home, you can always use the "Find My iPad" app to discover that you left it under a pile of magazines, or it fell behind the sofa cushions.
But one airline passenger had the presence of mind to use the app after leaving the plane...and found it in the home of one of the flight attendants.
Police arrested 43-year-old Wendy Ronelle Dye, who claimed that passengers had found the iPad on a seat and given it to her, figuring it had been misplaced or forgotten.
She also said that hadn't used it because she intended to return it to the airline...in spite of the fact that it already contained personal details such as her husband's birthday.
Finding a high-powered defense attorney? There's probably an app for that, too.
