So I skipped a day of 3D Printed stuff, will have one later, but for now here’s the news…
Apple products suck in my opinion, I hate them and now I have yet another reason to hate them even more.
I keep to myself, I mind my own business, I work from home, not making much money at it, but I’m home mostly all the time, I really don’t go out much but yet trouble just finds me for some reason. Karma, fate, bad luck, whatever it is, it seems I’ve got a dark cloud hovering over me. I try to be a good person, yes I’m miserable most of the time, but I try to be honest and help those when I can and I try not to bother anyone.
About two months ago the police came to my house saying they had reports of an old elderly woman crying for help in my house. I’m 42 and I’m oldest person here so I don’t understand that at all. I don’t get where that came from, and of course they’re not going to tell you who made the complaint. All he could tell me was that it was a 911 call about someone hearing an elderly woman crying for help in my house. Really?!
Now on Monday this guy and his two friends come to my house, knock on my door and he accuses me a stealing his iPhone?! I don’t know who the hell this guy is, never seen him before.
The thing that bothers me about this is that they came straight my house. I have security cameras outside and I saw these three people coming across the street and then they started coming up my steps. They parked and came straight to my house first. Why?
He asks me was I at Target today as his iPhone was stolen from the bathroom at Target. No I wasn’t, I wasn’t anywhere near Target, in fact I can’t remember the last time I was at Target, it’s got to be more than six months at least.
Anyway the guy proceeds to show me on his MacBook the GPS tracking for the iPhone which looks to me like it’s in the middle of the street. He goes on to say that the tracking is accurate within 20 feet so it has to be here but the problem there is that my house is about 80-100 feet away from the GPS mark. According to his little GPS mark it was actually in front of the house to the right of mine, directly in front actually, but yet he came straight to my house.
The next problem is that there is a cross street right there at my house, or one house over actually and he says that’s so and so street name right there and your house is here so it has to be here but no that’s not what that street is called, the street he named is one block over actually. Apparently he can’t read street signs either. So actually it wasn’t in front of my house, or the house next door, it was one block over. Again, why did he come straight to my house?
He didn’t even really let me look at the screen either, he just held it up and pointed to the mark and then turned the laptop away from me and then went on about the whole 20 feet thing and the wrong street name.
Maybe I’m being paranoid, but I don’t like it at all.
It seems to me that iPhone GPS tracking isn’t the greatest and I don’t appreciate being falsely accused for something like this.
The other thing that bothers me is this guy was actually knocking on doors accusing people of stealing his phone. Not what I would call the safest thing to do really.
Could it have been a scam to try and get into people houses? I sure as hell wasn’t letting him and his friends into my home, who knows what could happen these days?!
I don’t know but this just gives me yet another reason to hate Apple products…
"Today I’ve quick review of a rather unique and useful product from Bracketron called the Nav-Mat III which is a portable GPS mount for the dash of your car. It couldn’t be simpler to use really, it just sits on your dashboard and you attach your GPS to it. Well it’s a little bit more than that, so read on to learn more about it…"
