Cabel Sasser, founder of Mac software maker Panic, had a good news, bad news sort of day, Monday. The good news was that his iPhone, which was stolen in San Francisco, finally showed up in Apple’s MobileMe Find My iPhone service. The bad news? It was in Vietnam.
The Mac developer posted a series of tweets where he explained that his iPhone had been stolen, that it showed up Monday in Vietnam, and that he had then did the remote pin lock on the device to block the users out of it. Unfortunately, the new people in possession of his iPhone did a factory restore on it to bypass the lock and reset it.
Mr. Sasser isn’t lamenting his loss, however. He later tweeted, “It’s totally gone. I’ve moved on. White iPhone. :)”
Below is the series of images he posted to Twitpic showing his discovery process on where his stolen iPhone was, complete with his comic reaction at the end (captions added by TMO).
Woooohooooo!! It’s found!
Wait. What the…?
You gotta be kidding me…
