Flickr gives away thieves

Here’s an interesting story: Cellphone gets stolen. Possible thieves or at least people who bought the stolen cellphone start taking snapshots of themselves. Unknown to these blokes, the phone automatically sends copy of those snapshots to Flickr, an online photo sharing community, which the former owner has set up. Police then trace the people in the photo, and arrest the thieves. Cellphone is returned to its owner. This is no fiction.
