We’ve seen, heard and read interesting stories of how someone lost their iPhone and managed to recover it thanks to the Find My iPhone feature, or simply because the thief was stupid enough to take photos with their location in the background, so here’s another one that you guys can add to the list in which David Pogue, the technology writer for the New York Times, managed to recover his stolen iPhone thanks to technology. He utilized Twitter to reach out to the masses, which we guess helped since he does have a pretty huge following, Google Maps, Google Street View, Find My iPhone and finally thanks to a police officer, he has managed to recover his stolen device which for some reason was discovered lying in the grass at the backyard of a house, rather than in the hands of the thief. Anyway the folks at Gizmodo have the full run down so if you’d like the play-by-play, head on over for the details!
