    Funny story about a missing iPad


    So, we lost an iPad last week at work. We took it offsite to a customer and we believe we left it there. We call the customer today and say, "hey, we believe we left an iPad there". They verify that "nope, not here". We call back and say, "hey, just verifying that you don't have our iPad". They say, "did you just call a few minutes ago asking about this?", and we say "Yes, but we wanted to be sure that you had a chance to look before we pay the $50 to have the internal tracker activated on this device which can locate the device if it's off, wiped, etc". They said, "you really put something like that in the device, and we said "Yes, because we take these devices to trade shows and don't want to have them chained down but we need to make sure they don't walk away".

    Within 10 minutes, the customer calls back and low and behold, they do have our iPad.
