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 ownerâ€™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.
Itâ€™s bad enough being a thief, itâ€™s even worse when youâ€™re a dumb thief. Now hereâ€™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.Â So hereâ€™s a Tumblr called “Life of a Stranger Who Stole My iPhone” documenting the douchebagâ€™s life as a thief. The Tumblr has now reached 14,000 readers.
