Joshua Kaufman: This Guy Has My Macbook

For reals?

Published on

Editor's Pick

The blogosphere has been enjoying this Tumblr, in which a San Francisco interaction designer named Joshua Kaufman documents the theft, and recovery of his stolen MacBook, with the help of the Hidden app, which promises, for a fee, to "locate your stolen computer anywhere on the planet, collect photos of the thief and screen shots of the computer in use." Kaufman's MacBook was stolen in March, but in just the last couple days, the Tumblr appeared, featuring photos of the alleged thief and announcing his arrest by Oakland police soon after. The effort smells like a clever marketing ploy— stay tuned for further developments.
