A guy by the name of Ben Clemens had his mobile phone stolen last month (aug 06). Nothing unusual about that I hear you say. Except that Mr Clemens phone had some software on it that immediately uploaded a photo taken on it to Flickr. A couple of days after the phone was stolen pictures began to appear in the profile on Flickr of a woman, children and a Chihuahua. No one knows if these were taken by the thief or by someone who bought the phone but a huge amount of web traffic was created after the story appeared on Mr Clemens weblog. What I want to know is, was the thief caught?? More here from Reuters via Yahoo.com. The mystery photos are here.
