“Luckily, I’m a subscriber to MobileMe, Apple’s $99/year service which includes a handy feature called Find My iPhone. Saturday night, after losing my iPhone, I logged into Me.com/find and immediately had chills running down my spine,” O’Grady reports. “My iPhone wasn’t on the Hollywood Studios property (or any Disney property for that matter) but instead in an apartment complex about 15 minutes north.”
O’Grady reports, “My first instinct was to arm myself and retrieve my stolen property, old-school style. Luckily, I took a deep breath and instead decided to use a little tact in my pursuit… On Sunday night, I checked Find My iPhone and got chills again. My iPhone had moved from the apartment complex to a supermarket parking lot about two miles away.”

MacDailyNews Take: Send a Push Notification that states: “The Orlando Police Department is currently tracking you. Leave the stolen iPhone at the supermarket’s service desk and walk away now or face arrest.” If that doesn’t work, continue tracking and sending Push Notifications that prove that you know the exact location of the person carrying the stolen iPhone at all times. Every two minutes. And, if that still doesn’t work – hello? – tell the police that you’re tracking your stolen iPhone 4, so they can go get it back for you.
