Find My iPhone Causes Umpire Fail & a Bit of Rage

Technology is usually helpful, except when it isn’t. A youth baseball umpire “lost” his iPhone (Fail #1), “tracked it down” via Find My iPhone (Win #1), accused someone who was “in the proximity” using an iPhone of stealing it (Fail #2), punched the “thief” (Fail #3), took “HIS” iPhone (Fail #4), then later “found” the misplaced iPhone where he had left it (Fail #5).

The umpire is now facing charges of assault and disorderly conduct (Fail #6). Final score? Fail – 6 Win – 1 – all brought on by some pretty cool technology.

“All Your Android Info Are Belong To Us” Wifi Hack?

Add this to the…”uh why didn’t we check this” category. Android 2.2.3 users (that’s like 99.7% of Android devices) can have their authentication tokens swiped if on an unsecured wifi network.

Well, big fail for missing in testing. It’s fixed in 2.2.4…but the update isn’t available to many yet…uh…carriers…typically…delay…releases…DOH!
