Twitter Follower Helps Track Down Missing Computer

Sean Power said his laptop was stolen on a trip to New York. He'd installed a program that let him locate the computer if anyone turned it on. He could even see the user through the built-in camera. He reached out to his Twitter followers, one of whom sent updates as she went to the restaurant where a man was using the computer.
