A Fairfield, Connecticut man took his Apple G5 desktop to the Genius Bar at the Stamford Town Center store complaining about some issues with his image file thumbnails. It seemed some thumbnails were overwriting thumbnails on other images and they didn't match up. According to court documents, the Genius started examining the files, and allegedly found pictures of naked juvenile girls in suggestive poses. The tech called a policeman who was stationed at the mall, and the customer Raymond Miller was promptly arrested and charged with possession of child pornography. If convicted, Miller faces a minimum of 5 years in jail. Police also searched Miller's home, but found nothing illegal. Remember, when you bring your Mac into a store for service the technicians will likely see whatever is on your machine in the course of repairing it, Tuaw.
