September 25, 2007: Computer thief apparently uploads pic of himself



Making the rounds, via Boing Boing. Do you know this man? Let the victim tell the tale:

Quote:
Last week a number of computers were stolen from our office in Vancouver, BC. One of those computers was a shared iMac with Flickrbooth, an app that automatically uploads photo booth shots to our flickr account, installed on it. Just this morning a friend called to tell us that there are photos of whoever has the computer now in our flickr stream! Obviously the guy didn't know he was uploading images of himself and his awesome tattoos.
As the Flickr page says,
Quote:
Yes, our computer was stolen and this photo was taken since...Wow this guy is dumb.

If anyone knows this guy or recognizes the tattoo artist please e-mail us at info[a]abetterplacetowork.com
...
The funniest part is that he had to name the picture and then click a button that says "upload" in order for it to show up here. It's not totally automatic.

Eh?? He knows he's doing something but he doesn't know fully what it is?



Flint  Tuesday Sep 25 03:04 PM

Somethin' ain't quite right about this guy...



Spexxvet  Tuesday Sep 25 03:20 PM

He looks like a former boss of mine, but last I heard, he was in Cincinnati.



Flint  Tuesday Sep 25 03:27 PM

Apparently, someone has already thought to provide something like this, as an anti-theft measure:

Quote:

Transmission of network information

Undercover transmits network information of the stolen Mac. This information includes both internal and external IP addresses and the router address, enabling our recovery center to accurately trace the Mac's physical location, in collaboration with the ISP and the police.


See what happens on your stolen Mac

Undercover is the world's first theft-recovery software that will send screenshots of your stolen Mac at regular intervals. These screenshots will sooner or later reveal the thief's identity (e.g. when chatting, reading and writing emails,...) making it much easier to work with law enforcement in order to recover your Mac.


See who's using your Mac
Undercover introduces another world first: if your Mac has a built-in or external iSight, Undercover will transmit pictures of the thief and his surroundings every 6 minutes, making it even easier to identify the current user. It's like having a private detective working for you.

What did you do? They look like the same guy, but different weight and tatoos. Twins?


BigV  Tuesday Sep 25 03:39 PM

It's all done with mirrors these days.

I think he split the first picture and made two from the mirror images.

aaaah, I see.


theotherguy  Tuesday Sep 25 03:42 PM

In Flint's shots, it looks like the guy is playing with the special effects that come with iSight (the mac camera).



Flint  Tuesday Sep 25 04:14 PM

D'oh!

Is he built like this ???



Saphyre  Tuesday Sep 25 05:16 PM

//sigh// I really try to have faith in my fellow human beings... truly... but outside the cellar and a few other choice locations, I'm finding more and more people whose common sense is gravely lacking. But I'm in a funk today, so maybe it's just me.

No sadly its not just you


BigV  Tuesday Sep 25 06:27 PM

Don't be so blue (they come in pink y'know. sapphires, that is).

It's a *good* thing that the bad guys are dum. It's just gravy that we get to laugh at this one. Ok, sry the computer has been stolen. But the rest is pretty funny. If you want funk, I strongly suggest you get down here instead.



Sheldonrs  Tuesday Sep 25 06:39 PM

May I suggest you check the dating and hook-up sites for his pictures?

Possibly www.trollsneedlovetoo.com?

www.billygoatsgruff.org?

www.patheticlosershaveneeds.net?


www.wherethefuckismyneck.edu?



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Sep 25 07:28 PM

Hey, maybe that guy bought it...out of the trunk of a car... in the alley behind the bar... at 3 AM... in good faith.

SPUCK  Wednesday Sep 26 02:30 AM

What's strange is why does some thief show up sans clothes?? This is weird. I'd start packin if it was my Mac stolen by this A-hole.



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Sep 26 04:50 AM

The picture was taken after the guy stole it, that is him using the computer in his seedy home.


Undertoad  Wednesday Sep 26 08:55 PM

Update: Dude turned himself in

Quote:
The man also contacted Global BC on Tuesday, telling the station he did not know the computer was stolen and that he had bought it from a friend who had bought it from someone else.



JuancoRocks  Thursday Sep 27 04:42 AM

Computer thief................

First name basis with a lawyer.......(must go to court a lot)

In the call to Global BC, he said he wanted to clear his name and that he has a legitimate day job as a bodyguard. (That reeks of a legitimate occupation)


Savannh  Friday Sep 28 04:32 PM

You beat me to it--the guy's from my city. I had a chuckle when I saw the same picture in the Times Colonist yesterday.

He looks really familiar, but I don't know if it's because I'd seen him all over the web, or else I know him from somewhere...



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Sep 28 04:47 PM

Brown said the man was "known to police."



SPUCK  Monday Oct 1 04:52 AM

He's not on a first name basis with a lawyer... He was probably hunted down by the ambulance chasing shark.



bullwinkle  Wednesday Oct 24 07:38 PM

remember kids that dumb spelled backwards is mud
