An iPhone crusader's tale of retrieving his stolen phone
You should read this tale of a man using the new iPhone's "find me" feature to locate his stolen cell phone after attending a Lego convention in Chicago. It's a great tale. (Gosh, I just hope it's true!)
So I felt like about zero cents, but then we giddily realized that I had *just* activated the brand-new Find My iPhone service. Even better, Mark had a Sprint (yes, Sprint) USB dongle giving him Internet access over 3G on his MacBook Pro. Excited to try it out, we hopped onto me.com and clicked the Find My iPhone link.
Wonder if Apple realizes that they could have legions of iPhone vigilantes who'll be going off hunting their stolen handsets with the help of GPS technology and mobile web connections?
Do you see a potential problem here -- or does this just mean more power for the consumer and the victimized citizen?
