This Stolen MacBook Now Broadcasts All The Secrets From Its New Owners In Iran

At one point in time, Dom had a beautiful MacBook and iPad that he loved very very much. Then one day, when Dom was out having some fun, thieves broke into his London flat and stole his MacBook and iPad. Assholes.

After calling the police and trying to recover his stolen MacBook and iPad, Dom remembered he had Hidden App installed on the MacBook. And one month later, when the MacBook finally got connected to the Internet again, it started broadcasting all the thieves secrets, from its new home in Iran.

Unfortunately, Iran is a bit out of the police’s jurisdiction, but at least Dom gets to know who his adversary is, incase they ever cross paths at an airport. On top of that, Dom’s created an awesome Tumblr so everyone can know what the thieves are up to.

Here are some of the pictures Dom’s MacBook thieves have taken:

This might be the thief. Or their friend. Or someone who bought the MacBook from the thief and thought they were getting a slamming deal on a totally-not-stolen-MacBook.

The thief and her friends love to play Jenga.

They also love to go on field trips to tall buildings, look through telescopes, take pictures, and then look at pictures of them looking through telescopes on the stolen MacBook.

The ladies in the pictures most likely are not Dom’s thieves. I imagine they bought the stolen MacBook off some dude, because there ain’t no way you can buy a legit MacBook from a store in Iran.  You can check out even more great pics from Dom’s stolen laptop over on his Tumblr.

    His tumblr site is currently requesting a password for access, just an FYI.

    What’s crazy is that a smart thief would have known how to do a password reset to get admin access and remove such things

    There’s your problem right there: There’s really no such thing as a “smart” thief. Thieves/criminals are predominantly and typically not very bright people. They do not think about the consequences of their actions to themselves.

    Should the British reopen their embassy there in Tehran — it was shuttered in November of 2011 — he could see if Foreign Office staff could inquire about the item.

    Apparently he was deleting his posts then because now the site merely contains an apology for violating the “thief”‘s privacy.

    Bravo to Dom, for allowing the family to keep the laptop!!! Dom set up a paypal account and let us help buy you a new one.

    From what I read on his tumbler, the family didn’t steal the laptop & offered to return it. He actually removed their pictures to respect their privacy. I think this article should be updated & pictures removed accordingly..

    I would like to see the current owners send the original owner information about who sold them the stolen Mac. Both parties got ripped and we should try and get them punished.

    Kuddos to the family in Iran who stepped forward. Being honest is a dying art in this world.
