David Pogue's lost iPhone

It seems that NYTimes columnist David Pogue lost his iPhone, and mother of all surprises, managed to get it back. Here is the account straight from the horse's mouth.

After reading that, I was left wondering what would have happened if it were anywhere in any of the (almost all) Asian countries. The person who managed to pick David's pocket, would have actually walked over to the nearest "phone service centre", where a friendly guy would have rooted out the phone, changed the baseband and other software, and made sure it would not be tracked by any kind of online tools. That, ladies and gentlemen, is what a smart thief would do.

I find it amusing that the thief did not have the brains to go the extra distance !

    Hi Shyam Sir,

    We, a group of young zealous guys, reach out to you with an idea on our minds and a vision in our eyes of creating one unique platform where people publish whatever they want – poems, stories, real life incidents, humour, motivational articles and anything else that they’d like to share.

    Our platform, INSCRIBE, will publish your work and help you reach out to exactly the kind of readers you’d desire. Keeping the interface simple, minimal and user-friendly, we would make your experience of reading and writing extremely easy and comfortable, while allowing you to connect with like-minded users.

    As we prepare to launch our venture on the internet, we approach a select list of people who have inspired our generation in their own ways and have been patronized by the social media communities, to share any of their works with us for our inaugural round of publications. We believe your work would create a great first-time experience for the users of INSCRIBE and encourage them to read and write.

    Please mail your work or link to your blog at:

    Thanking you,

    Best of Regards

    Akshay Choudhry
    Team Inscribe
