It has come to my attention that many thieves preyed on drunken party-goers that leave their belonging unattended in clubs. But there many other cases where smartphones got stolen and soon was recovered thanks to technology. I personally have a colleague who accidentally left his smartphone at a fast food joint and eventually retrieved it back thanks to the auto-sync feature on Google+. The thief played with took some pictures which soon were uploaded to the owner’s Google+ account. The owner then managed to identify the worker that took his smartphone at the fast food restaurant and retrieved it back with the help from the authority.

It’s bad enough being a thief, it’s even worse when you’re a dumb thief. Now here’s an interesting way to payback the douchebag that stole an iPhone from a lady. The thief, it seemed, had not turned off the feature that uploaded photos to Dropbox whenever the phone was connected to Wi-Fi. Not only that, he sent her a message on Facebook.  So here’s a Tumblr called “Life of a Stranger Who Stole My iPhone” documenting the douchebag’s life as a thief. The Tumblr has now reached 14,000 readers.
