    Hey Now! Thought I'd share my story........

    Oh my gosh. I was boarding a flight on US Airways from Philly to Raleigh N.C. On Thursday and realized I had left my iPad in the men's restroom. I had to talk my way off the plane and run back to the facilities. It was gone! I got on the plane and called the airport lost and found with no luck. Landed in Raleigh and called again... Still no luck. I called when I got to the hotel, and still no luck.

    I realized how much my iPad had become part of my daily routines. I decided right then to order a new one right away, but first called Apple to see if I could transfer my AppleCare warranty. They explained that I couldn't but that they would refund me for the unused portion. She then checked her notes and said Jodi from US Air had called and referenced my iPad's serial number as having been found! The Rep emailed me Jodi's phone number at the baggage claim area at the airport. I picked it up yesterday when I returned home with no problem. It's great to see that there are still good people left in this world!

    By the way, Jodi explained that the airline has so many lost Apple products that they have a special hot line number they use to call Apple to report them found! She also noted that there are some flyers who regularly request seating in the last row of the plane. Apparently they do that so that they can scan the empty seats for lost valuables and take them as they leave the plane after landing.

    I heard that Apple didn't assist in the recovery process for lost products, so I was happily surprised to see that they actually did.

    Well, that's my story do any of you have your own to share?

    We only hear bad stories and news so it's good for you to share the good news. There's lots of good people out there. The news just sells if they discuss the bad stuff.

    Not me. I have no choice. It won't let me use the Custom Avatar option. All of a sudden.
