"Find My Phone" found his golf clubs
There's no real news here, but rather a fun and satisfying story about a thief, a mobile phone, and some golf clubs. A friend of the author passed along his tale in which, after finishing a round of golf, he retired to the 19th hole, leaving his bag outside. Upon coming out, he found that his golf bag was gone, as was the WP7 phone that was in the pocket. After calling the phone several times without answer, the man returned home and quickly brought up the Find My Phone website only to see his phone moving further and further away form where he was.
Eventually, the phone came to a stop, about 80km away. The man called the police and directed them to the location. Later that night, he was notified that they had found the golf bag and a thief who thought he had made an easy score.
Find My Phone is a standard feature of WP7. We highly recommend you set it up on your device if you haven't already.
