Seriously, I do wish that I had Back to My Mac or Eye-fi on my phone. At least I would know who stole it and humiliate them by posting their picture on the office intranet and my blog 😛
What do they say about revenge? Ah yes, that it’s best served cold…. muahahahaha.
The story below from Yahoo! Tech blogs:
Alison DeLauzon lost two digital cameras full of snapshots and videos of her son. She probably had given up all hope of recovering them, when the unexpected happened: one of the cameras sent pictures of the thieves to her computer.
This was possible thanks to her Eye-Fi memory card, which has wireless capabilities that uploads photos to the Web once it detects a Wi-Fi signal. The thieves were obviously unaware of such technology, so when they passed by an unsecured Wi-Fi network, all the pictures in the camera, including their own, were automatically sent to DeLauzon’s account. To make a story short, Ms. DeLauzon recognized the thieves, who worked at a restaurant where she had dined, and was able to recover her camera equipment.
Ahhh, when are thieves going to learn? It’s great to hear stories like this one, isn’t it?
