I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .iPad found wedged in car bumper, intact and working

A Georgia woman who drove over an hour with an Apple iPad stuck in her car's front bumper said the tablet computer was intact and functioning when she found it.

The iPad, mistakenly left on the roof of another car, flew off at 40 mph and struck Alexa Crisa's vehicle as she drove around the Atlanta suburbs of Marietta and Roswell, the New York Daily News reported Friday.

"I went to Target and ran errands with this iPad hanging out of my bumper. I had no clue. I'm not even sure how I missed (seeing) it, other than I don't check my bumper for random dislodged electronics," said Crisa.

The device was returned to its owner, the newspaper added.

I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .April Fools' microchip prank irks resident

Some residents of a New Mexico town said they were angered by an April Fools' prank using a fake city newsletter to tell them they would be microchipped.

The document, printed in the style of the Bernalillo city newsletter, was delivered to homes Monday and explained a toll road was going electronic and "residents of Bernalillo will be exempt from toll charges and will be implanted with a microchip that will allow for toll-free travel," KOAT-TV, Albuquerque, reported Thursday.

"You go to the bottom, and it says, 'Happy April Fool's Day,'" Miller said.

However, Miller said the disclaimer was not conspicuously placed.

Oh, I was very fooled," Miller said, "until I was contacted by someone, who was contacted by someone, who was contacted by someone, who said, &#…

I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .Store criticized for Facebook suspect pic

A Swedish grocery store has removed a photo of a suspected thief from its Facebook page after the move was criticized.

The Ica store in Vastra Gotaland posted an image from a surveillance camera of a suspected thief with the comment "nice that you like our lamb and beef," leading to several comments, some of a racist nature, Swedish news agency TT/The reported Friday.

Other comments raised questions of whether sharing the image online was legal. The Association of Ica Retailers criticized the move.

"It is highly inappropriate and nothing that we would support. Regardless of whether it is illegal or not it is not appropriate to do so under the Ica brand," spokesman Staffan Ekengren said. "This is definitely something we will look into."
