He wanted to hide the evidence, but he wasn't quick enough, according to prosecutors. Police arrested a man Wednesday evening for stealing a car from a Grand Avenue parking valet after they traced him to an empty lot in Greater Grand Crossing with a tracker from an iPhone left inside the car, according to court records.

While I certainly consider myself a pretty tech-“hep” individual, I usually refrain from writing about the latest gadgets, gizmos, and internet trends because let's face it, there's barely any readership for that kind of thing.

Are the Wrigley rooftops the best view of the diamond, or the most overrated seats in town? Is the United Center floor the place to be to catch the Bulls in action, or just a little too close for comfort?

After his less-than-notable experience, Hanson, 28, left his job in the pharmaceutical industry to create RateYourSeats.com, a site...

When I heard the iPhone 5 had racked up millions of preorders in the first 24 hours and lines were forming outside of some Apple stores a week before Friday's launch, I half expected to read that it was magic. But I scoured the features list and unfortunately, no, the iPhone 5 won't grant you the power of flight, decode your pets' languages (they all really just constantly say "feed me" anyway) or persuade that cute bartender to give you his/her phone number.

The first rule of protecting your iPhone from theft? Don't walk around with your earbuds in and your music turned up. An Andersonville woman did just that on the steps of her apartment Sunday afternoon, state prosecutors said, and a teenager seized the opportunity to take her phone. Kevin Phelon, 19, of the 900 block of West Lakeside Place, was arrested Sunday evening a few blocks South of the Berwyn Avenue apartment, and charged with theft. According to the police report, he twisted the...
