Apparently every cab in New York will eventually be home to a celebrity iPhone; just a week after the NY Daily News reported on the guy who copied Annie Leibovitz's assistant's contact list after he found it in a cab, a Facebook user says he found the iPhone of Richard Cohen, the NYC real estate developer who recently divorced newscaster Paula Zahn, in a cab. The celeb contact list is below, so you can argue whether the list (which includes Kissinger, Kerry, and Deniro) trumps Leibovitz's.

ha! it was actually Paula Zahn's ex! his chauffeur gave me $20 reward upon return...out of his own pocket. i so didn't hesitate in taking it.
Incidentally, Gawker publisher Nick Denton always locks his iPhone with a passcode.
