Strange News – Technololgy Wins Over Criminal
After 27-year-old New York jazz trombonist Nadav Nirenberg had his cell phone stolen, he used his head, a little technology, and a hammer to get it back. Nadav had accidentally left his cell phone in the back of a cab. The next morning he learned via email that someone was sending messages to women using a dating app on the phone. So Nadav logged on to the service and offered the cellphone thief a date — posing as a woman — complete with a hot picture. The “hot girl” invited the thief over to her apartment and he promptly accepted. When he showed up at Nadav’s apartment in Brooklyn with a bottle of wine, Nadav greeted him holding a hammer. The thief quickly handed over the iPhone and left without a word.
