Did this guy's Macbook really get nicked?
Over the past day or so, the internets have been awash with chatter about a site calling itself This Guy Has My Macbook, a tumblr blog where an unnamed individual has been charting the progress of his stolen Macbook, with the help of an app called Hidden.
We have seen pictures of the thief using the Macbook, and even though the images are as clear as day, the police were seemingly unable to do anything about the crime. Until a few hours ago, coincidentally as the site went viral across the internets.
The latest update says... “Update: (May 31, 8:37 PM PST) ARRESTED! An Oakland police officer just called me to let me know that they arrested the guy in my photos! BOOYA! The police used my evidence (email which pointed to a cab service) that he was a driver and tricked him into picking them up. Nice work OPD!”
So all’s well that ends well? Or just a cunning marketing device for the Hidden app that has done its job spectacularly well? Hmmm... what do you lot reckon?
