Hve you seen this dumb crook?

BoingBoing has a short article about a dumb crook that stole an iMac. What the crook has not realized is that the computer, which has a built in camera, is running a little program called Flickrbooth, which automatically takes pictures and uploads them to a Flickr photo account.

So the Flickr account now has some nice pictures of the crook, complete with high resolution images of tatoos on his upper body. This guy should enjoy his fifteen minutes of fame on the Internet, because it is not likely to last long.

Sometimes the technology wins one for the rest of us.
