I guess I don’t know this for a fact, but in order to put credit cards on an iPad or iPhone, I thought you had to use facial recognition, fingerprints, or the 4 or 6 digit pin. If that’s true, if someone tries 10 unsuccessful times to log in, the iPad will erase itself. The most they can do, without logging on, is a full blown “Reset All Settings”. Either way anything not saved somewhere will be lost, but your cards and data will be safe.

You guys are amateurs!!! Never ever put anything on a roof of a car or on the back bumper!!! I've lost cell phone, car keys, and who knows what else that way!! At the police dept I've had some real goodies. I made a court run once to drop off paperwork, and pick up stuff to go back to our records dept. The usual recalled warrants, paid tickets, court dispositions etc. The stuff coming back was in a big envelope. I must have set it on top of the car at the court and left. When I got back to the station (about a 25 minute drive)I couldn't find the envelope. I was wedged under the lightbar. More recently I came in to work mids. I went to load up and opened the passenger door. There was a laser laying on the front seat. I opened the door with my right hand, took out the laser (worth several thousand dollars)and you guessed it, put it on the roof of the cruiser.I then put my duty bag on the front seat, strapped it in, and shut the door. Being dark outside I never noticed the laser. Off I went on my shift. The next day one of my co-workers was approached by someone once he had cleared a call. They handed him the laser saying," did one of your guys lose this?" He had found it in the road somewhere. It hadn't been run over or damaged in any way!! God watches out for fools and policemen, sometimes one in the same!!!

I've done this several times, and so far have been lucky enough to lose only a cup of coffee or soft drink.

Well I've given up on it turning up. The find my ipad app has turned up nothing. Has not been powered up, it will wipe clean immediately. The rebate form for the motor oil was filled out with my address but since it rained over the weekend the ink and paper probably both are unreadable. That is if anyone who found it is honest enough to return it,ha!

I went to work Monday, turned off the app and tried to "ping" it to no avail so put the wipeout mode back on. Walked a couple of more parts of my route home in the tall weeds, nothing. So, that chapter is over.

Thanks for letting me vent, I was beating myself up pretty bad over this. But on a brighter side, the Jeep no longer sounds like a broke ass tuner car, my friend's shop fixed it yesterday for less than a hundred dollars, two bolts rusted away that connect the y-pipe to the muffler. I could have fixed it I suppose but I really hate to lie on my back and work on rusty stuff. The grief that I would have gone through with that, well it was worth it to have it done.

Well yesterday I bought a new iPad. Target had it on sale, net after that and applying for the red card it cost me about twenty dollars more that the lost one did and that is without waiting until the Black Friday sales.

Thanks for listening to me piss and moan!

MMSIG229 actually said it best...
"Never put anything on the roof or hood of a car"

It took me three times to learn this in my work, I drive a van and would put my note book on the hood of the van while packing up tools... and each time would tell myself not to forget it and then would. Note book, with paper work and checks and such would fly off somewhere between 45 & 50 mph. Oh, and one time I left the Garmin gps receiver for my employee/ dog's tracking collar on the hood... never found it. Cost me $600 to replace.

Not unless I find it alongside the road submerged in a ditch somewhere in those thirty two miles of commute.

In the summer of 1987 I lost two boxes of 30-30 ammo off the back seat of my motorcycle while driving home from work. I backtracked and slow drove the entire route but they were gone. Still not over it. Smile

Hope you find your iPad. You can’t replace pictures. Good luck.
