Japanese Student Uses GPS to Retrieve Stolen iPad

A week ago, a university student in Kanazawa accidentally left his iPad in a supermarket. When he went back to retrieve it, it was gone. Somebody had stolen it.

Luckily, the student was tech savvy and the thief was not. The iPad’s GPS feature was on, so the student was able to track its physical location. He called the police, who entered the home, found the stolen iPad, and arrested the 64-year-old man who had taken it.

The man acknowledged his guilt, saying that he had “wanted to look at the insides” of the electronic device. For a short period, he was also able to use the iPad, but was apparently blocked from using it further after locks were enabled.


aww happy ending lol XD
