A tool called Find My iPhone helped an iPhone owner track down his stolen property and the suspect. Apparently the alleged thief didn’t know about Apple’s Mobile Me service. Mobile Me sends new emails, contacts and calendar events to hand-held devices and computers. Mobile Me’s Find My iPhone feature also helps users recover lost iPhones.
As the story goes, a 15-year old discovered that his iPhone had been stolen from his father’s car. After reporting the crime to the police, the teenager was able to tracked down the stolen phone to an exact address, where the police found the stolen property and arrested the suspect.
