Man Loses Pinky from iPad Theft

Quote:
Cherry Creek iPad theft costs man his pinky

A man lost part of his pinky finger when a thief snatched an iPad that was in a bag tied around the man's hand.

Fifty-nine-year-old Bill Jordan said he had just purchased Apple's latest must-have item at a store at Denver's Cherry Creek Mall on Thursday and was near the parking garage when a thief grabbed the bag.

Jordan says the bag wouldn't come off of his hand and the thief yanked so hard he appeared to be sitting on the ground. The thief then jerked so hard that it stripped the skin on part of Jordan's pinky down to the bone. Doctors later amputated a portion of Jordan's finger.

Jordan had purchased the tablet computer for a friend in Canada.

Denver police were still searching for the suspect Tuesday.

You know, I always had this vague notion that nothing good would come from the iPad, but I just couldn't put my finger on it until now.
