Unintended Consequences

Quick and sort of crazy story of a guy in Las Vegas whose house seems to be some sort of default GPS coordinate for some lost Sprint phones:

Dobson was told that cellphone GPS systems don’t provide exact locations – they give a general location of where to start your search. And for some reason his house is that location for his area.

People keep turning up at his house and demanding he give them their phones back.

Often the stories of unintended consequences of technology are much more interesting than the intended ones.
