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.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
