A happy ending to the adventures of the 'stolen' iPhone
Could this be considered a happy ending to the viral adventures of an iPhone "stolen" during a Disney cruise last April?
The lost iPhone's owner, Katy McCaffrey, said she now has a new phone and is willing to be Facebook friends with the cruise employee who unwittingly implicated himself in the mess.
"Today the saga seems to be coming to a close. I had confirmation that I (mostly) got things right in the Facebook album and (probably) won't be in any trouble for my shenanigans. And I got a new phone!" McCaffrey said in a May 29 post on her new blog.
She was referring to her Facebook album "Stolen iPhone Adventures," where she posted photos uploaded by the iPhone to Apple's iCloud while it was in the hands of the thief.
As of Thursday afternoon (Manila time), the album - complete with satirical captions provided by McCaffrey - has had 22,137 shares.
The Facebook album went viral and attracted the attention of Disney and international media agencies, including Time magazine.
Time reported Disney Cruises had confirmed McCaffrey’s phone has been recovered and an employee placed on administrative leave, and “working on making it right with (McCaffrey).”
But in her blog, McCaffrey said that she will not seek out "Nelson," the employee she suspects stole her iPhone, she would accept a friend request from him.
"No, but if he friends me I'll totally accept," she said when asked if she would friend him on Facebook.
When asked if she will ever take a Disney cruise again, she replied: "My kid has already booked her next three spring breaks on a Disney cruise and will be studying under the Disney Princess fellowship this fall."
Still, McCaffrey still reposted some of the photos from her stolen iPhone's "adventure" on her blog. — TJD, GMA News
