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.comThe mystery photos are here.
