Now with built-in anti-theft technology …

Do not steal an iPad.

Well, do not steal anything, of course, except a base in a baseball game, if the pitcher isn’t looking and the catcher has slow reflexes, or a long glance at an attractive person at a singles’ bar if you are single.

But especially, do not steal an iPad or an iPhone.

They bite back.

There is an app that will allow the owner remotely to locate the device or to wipe it clean of data.

And then there is cloud data storage. If you have received an iPad as stolen property, as a Fort Wayne man is accused of having done, and then you use the iPad to take photos of yourself, those photos might be uploaded automatically into iCloud and accessed remotely by the iPad’s real owner

This is how police recovered the take from a burglary last month.

Photos that the iPad’s owner had accessed on iCloud led them to a man’s home, where they found the stolen mobile tablet and a laptop that had been taken in the same burglary.

One more reason to live a law-abiding life.
