Every year thousands of cellphones, PDAs, and iPods are left behind by New York City cab riders, most never to be seen again. But here’s a notable exception on two counts: an iPhone was returned to its owner, according to this story yesterday in the Daily News, and the owner was Annie Leibovitz‘s assistant. The contact list, which includes an A-list of celebrities, was apparently downloaded in the meantime and, according to the News, “a random sampling of them have already been drunk-dialed.” [The story also relates the tidbit that somehow the culprit’s own database was merged with Leibovitz’s, making for some strange bedfellows between personal-contacts details.]
