It works! Find My iPhone leads fuzz to phone-snatchers

enemy_of_the_state_xl_01-film-aAlthough I’m always skeptical of security measures like Find My iPhone, it’s always nice to hear when they work. In this case, a fairly ordinary phonejacking in Pittsburg was foiled when the fools forgot to remove the SIM from their recently acquired booty. After the perps took off, the victim went home, booted up his Mac, and tracked them to a local Wal-Mart, then to a restaurant. Officers apprehended them there, where they found the iPhone and other stolen stuff.

At last, the security measures we thrilled to in Enemy of the State and The Net are coming to fruition!
