Husband blames iPhone for lewd picture in e-mail account

The iPhone does many things well. But this probably isn't one of them.

The iPhone does many things well. But this probably isn't one of them.

An alleged female poster on the Apple Support site is reporting that she found a "raunchy picture" on her husband's iPhone, and that the photo had been sent via Yahoo e-mail to another woman. Her husband admitted taking the picture-we can't describe the contents here-but claims that he never sent it to anyone.

Here's where hubby got clever. He told his wife that he went to the Genius Bar at the local Apple store, where the staff experts told him he'd been a victim of an iPhone glitch. Specifically, "photos sometimes automatically attach themselves to an e-mail address and appear in the sent folder, even though no e-mail was ever sent," she writes.

The sympathetic respondents assured the woman that the iPhone doesn't automatically attach pics to emails, nor does it furtively snap photos of one's genitalia. A few suggested that she kick her philandering spouse to the curb. "Your husband is cheating on you. You have the evidence. Now take him for everything he has," wrote a user named "jayfo."

Sadly for the husband, the iPhone didn't automatically save his pic in the aptly-named junk folder.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
