    My father had a crazy Christmas today. Here's an excerpt from the e-mail he sent this evening:

    Wow thanks for sharing - glad everyone is going to be ok except for the scumbags that stole the rover. Hope they are locked away for a long time. Tracking it with an iPhone is a sweet deal.
    What is with the original call to the police? Why didn't they act right away? Could have saved their fellow officer from a harrowing experience.

    I'm guessing they did it on purpose. Most people will understand OnStar without explanation. It would take longer and more explanation to say this thing on the phone that lets you track the phone that happened to be in the car (especially when they want to focus more on the fact the suspects were caught and that one had attacked the officer).

    I always hope if anyone is gonna steal my backpack with all my goodies, that my iPod/iPad is there to track :) Good to know it works sometimes.
