updated 02:36 pm EDT, Fri April 26, 2013

Stolen iPhone used in Boston Bomber tracking

According to several recent news reports, an iPhone's GPS chip was used to help track the Boston Bombers to Watertown. Time, the New York Times, and Boston.com all have reported that after the bombing the two suspects stole a Mercedes and proceeded to flee the crime. However, what the thieves didn't realize is that the car itself was equipped with an mbrace tracking system and that an active iPhone had been left inside. None of the sources directly mention Find My iPhone, but it is likely that the device finding service played a part in the location of the stolen car.

    Hey, I use the Find iPhone app all the time to keep track of my kids. And yes - I *am* that kind of parent. :)
