    Here's a nominee for silliest way to get caught for committing a horrible crime of the year: A man stabbed a woman in a domestic dispute in Los Angeles and then stole her iPhone. Unfortunately for him—you already know where this is going—the police used Find My iPhone to determine the man's location and promptly arrested him.
    It was a fairly quick process! The Los Angeles Daily News reports:
    The man stabbed the woman in the arm in the vicinity of Wilshire and Beverly Glen boulevards on L.A.'s Westside and took off with her iPhone around 12:15 AM... Detectives used an application on the phone to follow a signal to a home in Pasadena, Bone said. The man was taken into custody at a home at Alameda Street and Avocado Avenue just before 5:00AM​
    The trek from West LA to Pasadena is a decent distance, so you could imagine the man thinking he got a good deal on his iPhone. Thankfully the cops nabbed him and the woman, who is presumably fine, got her iPhone back

    There are similar technologies on all platforms (not talking about just this feature). It becomes news when these technologies actually help in real life incidents. So stop bragging and taking sides.
    For example, we have that tracking of phones using IMEI but still most people don't get their phones back once stolen (a simple method).
