A Jersey woman has called out to Apple support forum users for a little help with a problem she is having. Apparently, she borrowed her husband’s iPhone and found a raunchy pic of him attached to an email sent to another woman’s address. The husband admits to taking the picture, but claims that the email attachment was a glitch. In fact, he said that the folks at his local Apple Genius Bar informed him that “photos sometimes automatically attach themselves to an e-mail address and appear in the sent folder, even though no e-mail was ever sent.” The wife has asked support forum users whether or not this could be true and adds that the future of her marriage rests on the answer.

The talks are said to have been spread over the past several months for at least two labels and aren’t certain to result in a favorable income.
