Are you sitting? You’d better be sitting down for this one. Go ahead, we’ll wait — safety first. Sitting now? Ok, here we go: David Pogue lost his iPhone.
Don’t worry, don’t worry! It’s ok — he found it eventually. Pogue, author and personal tech columnist for the New York Times, lost track of his iPhone on an Amtrak train back from Philadelphia, and didn’t realize he’d lost it until he got home. After he tweeted out pictures of the location via Find my iPhone, Gizmodo tracked down the house corresponding to the GPS signal, and the local Prince George’s County police stopped by to see what they could do.
We hate to spoil the big reveal (which Pogue has posted to his NYT blog), but the happy ending is that David Pogue has been reunited with his iPhone, and all’s right with the world once more.
