According to Guido, his scooter went missing while he was having dinner at a restaurant. When he left the company, the owner did not find it, but he did not bother when he remembered that he had devices in it – one was clearly visible and the other was hidden.
Tracking the vehicle’s movement through Apple’s search processor, he noticed that the scooter had not moved for a week. At the time, he decided to go to the police to report the theft, but he was only able to convince the agents who came with him after proving ownership of the device and he did not use the technology for malicious purposes.
My scooter was stolen last week. Unbeknownst to the thief, I hid two airtights inside it. Today Apple was able to use the Find My Network and UWP Orientation Discovery to retrieve the scooter. Here’s how everything went down:
