Conversation Starters: Stolen iPads and Paris Hilton

Better still, despite Wendy’s claim that she “found” the iPad on a seat and never intended to use it, officers found her personal information stored on it. Technology 1, Wendy 0.

Derek Stevens, owner of the D Las Vegas, made the questionable decision last week to “refund” all of the money gamblers lost on the controversial Packers/Seahawks game.
