A Cape Town man tracked down his iPad an hour after it was stolen in a smash-and-grab, it was reported on Friday.
Roy Henderson told the Cape Times the tablet computer was taken by two youths on Nelson Mandela Boulevard when he stopped his car to answer his cellphone on Thursday.
Afterwards, Henderson phoned a friend, who accessed his internet account and tracked the iPad to a nearby flat using the tracking system preinstalled on the tablet.
They retrieved the tablet at the flat, but the thieves were nowhere to be found. They suspected the thieves were scared off by messages blaring from the device.
