To Catch a Thief





On April 27, Kait Duplaga returned home to find that her apartment had been burglarized. More than $5000 in electronics had been taken--including Kait's Apple laptop computer. The police had no leads, and for a while, the thieves must have believed they had executed a perfect crime.

But they didn't count on Kait's crazy computer skills!

Last week, Kait received a call from a friend who said he'd seen her computer logged into iChat. The thieves were online! So Kait, who works at an Apple Store, decided to catch them in the act. She used a brand-new Mac feature called "Back to My Mac" to log into her computer remotely. Then she used the computer's built-in camera to take pictures of the crooks.

One of Kait's friends recognized the men as guests at a party they'd thrown a couple of weeks earlier. The police were able to identify them, and all of Kait's belongings were recovered!

Thanks for the tip, Sekrit7!

That is the most irregular mouse- I wonder if mice can read? If they could, I bet it's influenced by Kiki Strike.
