IN THE NEWS: iPAD THIEVES TRACKED

HOUSTON (AP) -- Well, that was easy. When a couple of guys allegedly swiped an iPad, they made it fairly easy for police to track the culprits down. Authorities in Houston say the suspects used the tablet to take selfies -- and the images ended up being uploaded to the owner's iCloud account. And as if to further lower the degree of difficulty for the police, the images showed the men displaying money -- money they're accused of taking from the victim. The two have been arrested on theft charges.

Writing on her Facebook page, Madonna welcomed Lederman's arrest and called the hack "deeply devastating."
