Osama Bin Laden tracked down because of the new white iPhone 4

I made a post a few weeks ago about the real-time tracking going on in iPhones. I also posted a fix so it would turn off tracking. I guess Bin Laden didn’t get the memo (Grin).

he news is reporting that Osama Bin Laden was located and killed by the Navy SEAL Team 6 on May 1, 2011 because of the recent purchase of the new white iPhone 4. The iPhone 4 can pin point your location from anywhere in the world using GPS satellite technology in conjunction with Google Earth. Osama Bin Laden was being hunted for the past 10 years with no sign of him anywhere and some suspected him to have already be deceased. Apple Inc. recently got a tip that Osama Bin Laden was indeed alive and his favorite color for his tech gadgets was white and was anxiously awaiting the release of the white iPhone 4. Steve Jobs and the team over at Apple quickly improved and released the white iPhone 4 after about a 10 month delay in hopes that Osama Bin Laden would purchase the iPhone 4 in frosty white. He of course did purchase one and was quickly located and tracked. One Navy Seal member said Osama Bin Laden was in the middle of playing the game Angry Birds and demanded to finish the level……..Of course THIS IS A JOKE!!. On a serious note, CMOS labs wants to thank our American Military and President Obama for the work they have done to get this monster off the face of our Earth.

The Power of “Twitter”

Man unknowingly liveblogs Bin Laden operation

Osama bin Laden, the glowering mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that killed thousands of Americans, was slain in his luxury hideout in Pakistan early Monday in a firefight with U.S. forces, ending a manhunt that spanned a frustrating decade.

CAIRO (AP) – A computer programmer, startled by a helicopter clattering above his quiet Pakistani town in the early hours of the morning Monday, did what any social-media addict would do: he began sending messages to the social networking site Twitter.

With his tweets, 33-year-old Sohaib Athar, who moved to the sleepy town of Abbottabad to escape the big city, became in his own words “the guy who liveblogged the Osama raid without knowing it.”

Soon the sole helicopter multiplied into several and gunfire and explosions rocked the air above the town, and Athar’s tweets quickly garnered tens of thousands of followers as he apparently became the first in the world to describe the U.S. operation to kill one of the world’s most wanted militants.

Athar did not respond to an Associated Press request for comment – he explained in another tweet that a filter he set up to stop his email box from flooding could be culling out requests for interviews. He was up to more 70,000 followers by Monday evening.

“I apologize for reporting the operation ‘unwittingly/unknowingly’ – had I known about it, I would have tweeted about it ‘wittingly’ I swear,” he tweeted after realizing what he had witnessed.

Later, he gave an interview to Al-Jazeera’s English-language news network via Skype as he sat in a cafe. When asked if he was scared, he said that he’s from Lahore, “so I’ve had my share of bomb blasts.”

His first tweet Monday was innocuous: “Helicopter hovering above Abbottabad at 1AM (is a rare event).”

The noise alarmed Athar, who had moved to the upscale area of Abbottabad to get away from city life after his wife and child were badly injured in a car accident in the sprawling city of Lahore, according to his blog in July.

Nestled in the mountains around 60 miles (95 kilometers) northeast of the capital, Abbottabad is a quiet, leafy town featuring a military academy, the barracks for three army regiments and even its own golf course.

As the operation to kill Osama Bin Laden unfolded, Athar “liveblogged” what he was hearing in real time, describing windows rattling as bombs exploded.

He questioned whose helicopters might be flying overhead. “The few people online at this time of the night are saying one of the copters was not Pakistani,” he tweeted.

Athar then said one of the aircraft appeared to have been shot down. Two more helicopters rushed in, he reported.

Throughout the battle, he related the rumors swirling through town: it was a training accident. Somebody was killed. The aircraft might be a drone. The army was conducting door-to-door searches in the surrounding area. The sound of an airplane could be heard overhead.

Soon, however, the rumbling of international events far beyond the confines of this quiet upscale suburb began to dawn on Athar, and he realized what he might be witnessing.

“I think the helicopter crash in Abbottabad, Pakistan and the President Obama breaking news address are connected,” he tweeted.

Eight hours and about 35 tweets later, the confirmation came: “Osama Bin Laden killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan,” Athar reported. “There goes the neighborhood.”

—– Thats a good one ” There goes the neighborhood.”
