Indeed, he's got to know how to boot from a CD.

Instead of saying what I was originally going to say, I'll go with this, because this forum is rather sensetive to insults:

Mike, you have no morals. You are a poor example of the human race as a whole. Finders keepers losers weepers is for pre-schoolers, Mike. Someday, someone will punch your lights out, Mike, because they will find that they highly dislike scumbags.

Just remember, what goes around comes around. It seems to be a universal truth, you know. I pray that you will reconsider your crime and at least call Apple to see whome really owns it. That is the correct thing to do. The moral, the right, the virtuous thing to do. Yet, I highly doubt you will. The only reason you posted a thanks here is to **** everyone off that told you to do otherwise. That is why you are, at least in my mind, many things that this forums' moderators would probably find highly offensive.

Oh and just so you know, I am the one who kicked your headlights in.

Allright guys, Calm down. This guy was faced with a choice, a choice to keep what he found or try to return it. He made a choice and will live with it. There is nothing we can do about the choice, so lets forgive and forget. He made a choice, maybe not the right one but, its his and we should respect it, and not agree with it within ourselves.

Nope. I would never forgive and forget something like this. What are you talking about regarding us having to respect an jerk like this? Why should I respect him? What would someone have to do to loose your respect?

Dude, give the computer back.

And you really believe that "found at the airport"-story?! The fact that he doesn't even react to what people are telling him on this thread just makes it even less credible...

I rather think that either he has stolen it, or got it from someone who has stolen it...

He should still try to return it MacMan. What if it was your 'book. You'd be PRAYING that someone had the morals to at least try. Heck, if he tried and apple didnt have a record of the owner, then fine. At least he "TRIED" to do the right thing. As it is now, IMO, hes nothing more than a thief with an excuse.

I'm sure at least one of the accounts will be disabled if not both, and if he wants help with his "new" Mac he'll be hard pressed to get some here considering that he made no effort to return the property.

Good luck trying to sort your way with the machine that doesn't belong to you.
My guess is that you're too numb for the task. And yes:what goes around comes around.

Be happy poor soul! :p

God, i hope if i was dumb enough to leave my iBook somewhere, the person who finds it would return it to me.... I'd surely give them money for thier honesty, as i know how much of a temptation it would be to keep it.

Luckily almost all of my work on here is backed up.

I'm pretty **** sure if i left it at an Airport i'd be on the phone to them the second that i noticed it was gone, just as i've done with my luggage in the past!

Sounds to me that someone did find it at an airport, but didn't hand it in to anyone, as i am sure airports hold onto these things more more than 2 weeks, and that if they're not claimed, they go to auction...

Personally i hope the thing blows up. :batman:
