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 thisguyhasmymacbook.tumblr.com 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.
