Watch What You Steal

I’m going by what I’ve just read online – but it’s a classic technology story.

Someone has their MacBook laptop stolen. There’s no trace until a few weeks later when photos begin to show up on Flickr. It turns out this Mac was set to automatically upload any picture manipulated in Photobooth to Flickr!

Yes, that’s right. Most likely the ‘current owner’ of the laptop has been posting pictures that the former owner can now see.

Who are these people? I have no clue. But, based on a similar story with a purloined photo shooting cellphone, I suspect this Mac will somehow find its way home.

And you think she looks surprised now. Wait!
