"Back to my Mac" in action.

Leopard has a ton of neat features. But this is the first time I heard anyone use it for busting some bad guys.

http://www.lohud.com/apps/pbcs.dll/a...=2008805090392

Long story short a girl had a party at her place. 2 weeks later it was busted into and crap load of stuff was stolen. Thankfully for her she worked at a Apple store and knew her products well. So one day her friend calls and says she sees her online. The girl acted quickly and activated a leopard feature called "Back to my Mac." A remote login app. She activated the camera on her mac and started taking pictures.

Turns out the pictures she got was of two "friends" that were at her party. With the proof in hand she called the police and the two men were arrested and charged.

Those guys look like the kind of brainiacs to brag about it the next day at shcool.
