Stolen Sidekick: A Public Service Announcement

I don’t generally post things like this, but this (assuming it’s real, and from what I can tell it seems to be) deserves a mention:

"You lose a Sidekick, leaving it in a cab accidentally. Some idiots grab
it. Instead of doing the right thing and returning it, even after a
reward is offered? They keep it and start snapping pictures.

THIS
web page is the result. These idiots just keep digging themselves
deeper and deeper. Just thought I’d pass this web nugget along and help
spread the word."

Folks, the lesson here is simple, and would be simple even if this turned out to be a total hoax: Return lost property, especially a $300 cell phone.  But I’m sure you know that already.
