Dear Apple: I’m not impressed.

I found an iPad on the side of the road while walking back to work from dropping my car off to get the A/C fixed. The case is all busted up, but the iPad seems to be working fine - my guess is someone left it on the roof of their car and drove away. 

But it’s passcode protected and appears to be WiFi only, so there’s no way for the owner to ping it or find it via Find my iPhone/iPad - and I can’t get into it to find out who the owner is. I called Apple to see if they could contact the owner, but they wouldn’t - told me to either contact the police or “do whatever I wanted with it.” (Note: not an impressive response Apple rep.) I know they can’t give out the owner’s personal information to me, but I figured they could at least call them and let them know someone had found it. Nope.

Anyway, I called the Henrico Police to come get it. I also put a post on Craigslist that I found it and the police have it. Hopefully it gets reunited with its owner somehow.

Time to reread three of my favorites from the past couple years.

Huh. Never heard of a spoon killing someone.

Some days, everything comes together to deliver a message you really needed to hear. Today was one of those days.

So thank you Paramore, Robin Roberts, Emily Esfahani Smith, my kids and wife and the movie About Time, which I didn’t even know existed until about two hours ago.

And thank you God because I know you put all this in front of me today…and made sure I listened.

A question I’ve thought about a great deal is why it is so much easier to write about the things we dislike/hate/acknowledge to be flawed than the things we love.

This summer is going to be epic. Two of the best bands with two of the best fan bases in music. Two fan bases who care deeply and passionately about these bands and two bands who give all of that and more back to their fans every single night.

Can’t wait for summer.
