Too bad there isn’t some sort of service that Apple could use to transport these devices back to their owners. You know, one where they can package the devices up, hand them to a courier of some sort (I’m thinking snappy brown uniforms) and have the items taken safely to their owners. Read more

We really need to work on copyright law in this country. So many movies and television shows should have entered public domain by now.
