iSight, G4 catches thief

A MacNN reader notes the use of an iSight, EvoCam shareware, and a Power Mac G4 helped a Brigham Young University (BYU): "We set up an Mac OS X shareware called EvoCam with an iSight on our office G4. It starts recording automatically after sensing motion. Soon it recorded two guys wearing gloves and BYU sportswear entered our office with the aid of a key, removing several items from our office and the office next door and putting them in their backpacks. Footage was turned over to university police."

    & didn't steal the Mac?!

    These guys break in to steal things from offices and don't bother stealing the computer?!? Now that's a sad commentary on the status of Macs in Utah...

    because

    They didn't take the computers this time, but they've stolen tens of thousands of dollars of computer equipment over the past 2 years. Part of the reason they have held out so long is likely that they don't take much each time. Cool that it was the Apple products that finally got them caught.

    Geez

    Before we start to kiss each other's Apple asses, as people are prone to do on this site, my question is, why did they not do this sooner (using iSight or any other motion sensitive recording equipment).

    Duh.

    That's nothing...

    I kept the rabbits out of my garden by installing iRottweiler in the backyard. I also caught my wife cheating on me using iPrivateDick. And I won the PowerBall by using iCheat. Life is good.
