    Apple won't do the police's job investigating a crime. That would be a huge liability problem. They are more than happy to assist the police, and apparently the Airlines and other lost and found agencies. Nice to know.

    It may seem resonable to you, or me, that Apple should tell us where/if they've seen our iPads. After all they have a record of who bought it. But they don't have a record of whether it was sold it, given away, nabbed by a disgruntled ex-spouce, repossesd for a debt, etc. If they gave away information about the iPad without a warrent they could easily find themselves on the pointy end of a legal department. So they insist, not so unreasonabaly, that you file the claim with the police and have them ask.

    Good hearted people and companies that volutarily report missing items to Apple are another matter. It's good to know that they exist.

    That is really a great story. I am so glad you shared it. One usually only hears the negative reports. Losing my iPad would be a devastating happenstance. I am almost embarrassed at how attached I am to it.

    It must have been so painful for you, and then you saw how many good people are still around. Excellent post and story as the others have said. So glad that that episode ended so well.

    So glad it had a happy ending.

    There is a program called "Find my Ipad/Iphone" from Mobileme which is free which might help. This app allow you to register your devices--sort of a gps in your iphone, ipad, etc.

    Nice to know there are honest folks out there too.

    Never thought of that and still have a hard time believing. Then again.......

    Glad there are still people as Jodi around.
