iPhone to Blame for Lewd Picture in E-Mail, Man Says

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 email 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.
