A Disney Cruise employee named Nelson has become internet infamous after allegedly stealing a passenger's iPhone and using it to take several photos. Thanks to Apple's Photo Stream feature, the owner of the phone was able to grab Nelson's snaps of himself, his friends and his girlfriend and upload them to her Facebook account.
"This is Nelson," she wrote next to one photo. "Nelson stole my iPhone."
While it hasn't been proven that this man actually took the phone and then foolishly failed to delete the owner's account before using it as his own, things certainly don't look good.
"I have alerted the officials of the Disney Cruiseline and forwarded them the photos. Hopefully I'll get my phone back and maybe some free passes to Disneyland," wrote the alleged theft victim.
Disney has yet to comment on the incident.
Facebook's first day of public trading, by the numbers: 571 million shares traded, a 23 cent gain in share price (up to $38.23 from an initial price of $38), and one hilarious parody video from the Taiwanese animation wizards at Next Media.
And how did all of this affect Mark Zuckerberg's personal wealth? The Wall Street Journal is glad you asked. You can refer to their live tracker of the kid billionaire's fortunes for all your Zuckwatch 2012 needs.
With Facebook's IPO fast approaching (and estimates of its value continuing to grow), the folks at CDZA (of "History of Whistling" fame) couldn't have picked a better time to unleash "Zuckerberg: The Musical" on the world.
Looks like someone saw Sweeney Todd and took "My Friends" a bit too literally.
Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg announced today a potentially life-saving -- and possibly TMI -- new feature: Facebook users now have the option to share their organ donor status on their timelines. In a post on the site, Facebook points out that there are 114,000 people currently awaiting transplants in the U.S., and millions around the world.
"Medical experts believe that broader awareness about organ donation could go a long way toward solving this crisis. And we believe that by simply telling people that you're an organ donor, the power of sharing and connection can play an important role."
The new timeline feature provides links to organ donation registries in the event that someone wants to sign up, and currently is only available in the U.S. and the U.K. Widespread rollout is planned in the coming months.
20-year-old Michael Baker of Jenkens, Kentucky, was charged last month with stealing gasoline from a police cruiser after he posted photographic evidence of the theft -- complete with grin and bird-flip -- on Facebook, where it was passed around town and eventually seen by local police.
The photo has since been taken down, but Baker's Facebook page is still up. On his wall, he told a friend, "yea lol i went too (sic) jail over facebook."
Baker posted bail yesterday.
