Thief steals Macbook -owner remotely turns on web-cam to track him down

Some guy named Joshua Kaufman had his Macbook stolen out of his apartment a couple months ago and he used an app called Hidden to remotely turn on his webcam, take photos of the thief (or the guy who bought the computer from the thief) and also track down his location. Using a tumblr site he started called and Twitter, he released photos of this guy and with the slow aid of the Oakland police, they were finally able to track him down and make an arrest.

    Macs are overrated. This 'remote webcam app' should worry the sh*t out of you Mac-owners, especially with the recent run of Mac-scareware.

    This is, however, epic payback. Glad to see losers like this one getting busted.

    But he changed the sheets that were on it, so he knows it was stolen.

    "Reek" would be relative, but the odor would be present, yes.

    I do agree with all of the concepts you’ve introduced to your post. They are very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for starters. May just you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
