Android App ‘Lookout’ Foils Thieves Plans

Here’s one of those stories that serves as a great endorsement for Android and its applications.  An Oregon man recently had his house broken into and some of his possessions stolen.  Among them was his Motorola Droid.  Unbeknown to the thief, this handset was equipped with an app called Lookout, which routinely backs up user information.   Once the owner logged on to his account, he noticed a couple of pictures that he hadn’t taken.  The images were then downloaded and turned over to the police.  We’re sure you know what happened after that.

Thanks to John Hering for the heads up!
