If You’re Trying to Steal an iPad, It Shouldn’t Belong to This Guy

If you’re going to try to steal an iPad, you really shouldn’t pick one that belongs to Will Carling. Two quick reasons for that:

— He’s a former England rugby captain, and not at all the sort of guy you’d want to have to answer to if caught in the act.

— He know how to use MobileMe’s Find My iPad feature, so the chances are good you will be caught.

And that’s exactly what happened when Carling left his iPad on a train this week. The Telegraph has the story of how Carling successfully tracked down the would-be thief and was reunited with his iPad. I’m betting that’s one thief who was wishing for a very swift handover to the police.

  1. He didn’t bump into the thief. Apparently the iPad found it’s way to a police station while he was tracking it (and the thief). He posted updates on twitter as he went along.
