Yesterday a man in Pittsburgh was robbed by two men who flashed a black pellet gun and demanded the man's wallet, PIN, and iPhone. The two robbers Find My iPhone Helpstook these items and then left the victim alone.

Fortunately the victim who got robbed was smart! He had purchased Apple's MobileMe Find My iPhone service for his iPhone and had enabled it. The Find My iPhone service allowed him to track wherever his iPhone went.  He contacted the cops and with the help of the Find My iPhone service, they were able to successfully locate the thieves who stole his iPhone.

The two robbers were found at Walmart, with a third robber who was a friend of theirs and used the victims credit card to purchase items. All three were arrested. Two of the robbers will be charged with robbery, while the third one will face charges relating to using stolen credit cards.

Not typical! Your comment however is typical of a narrow-minded bigot.
I pity you.

I should have also commented on the derogatory term you used. You are a mental midget without compassion if you judge people based on the color of their skin instead of the content of their hearts.
Black is beautiful! Stealing is ugly, and so is racism.

OMG! Wow that Apple thingy actually workS! Cool! It's so idicusly that Thos 3 man do that, I mean Obama its trying to teach paople that people like him doesn't need to be like they are and they all can be professionals and good man. Well all I say it't please people be more moral and responsable, and if you want somethinyou have, but don't have money ind a Job, and buy it, even if its refurbished and that have to buy it trough certain Legal online stores to get what you want cheaper. There's no need to steal, because there always good deals around and legal too.

NOTICE: I NEVER MEANT TO OFEND ANYBODY OR ANYONE IN TERMS OF RACE, RELIGION, SEX, OR ANY OTHER FACTOR. JUST MAKING A POINT BY MAKING A COMMENT, THANKS

Thanks!
