    Maybe they better link this feature to an app that teaches you karate. Won't be long before the stories of confronting your thief end badly.

    Just read the original article about the guy loosing and tracking his phone as mentioned in that article. Hilarious read and very entertaining. I'm now thinking about activating MobileMe service specifically for this. Because who knows when your Phone will get snuffed.

    Because I know that if someone steals my phone and tries to get away with it, they'll have 5 problems to deal with (pointer, index, ring, pinky and thumb) :D

    I don't think people realize what this tech means. We now have the means to track people via GPS by using an iPhone placed somewhere on them or in a vehicle.

    "I'll just place this iSpidey tracer and follow them at my leisure."

    Sorry Sparrows,

    But the ability to track someone by hiding a cell phone in their bag, briefcase or auto has been around for quite a while. Since shortly after the GPS function was put on the cell phone. It would surprise you to know the number of divorces that have happened because of this function.
