Eye-fi (spy)

Now for sometihing a bit light-hearted.
Thieves in an american restaurant stole a woman's camera. Little did they realise it was loaded with one of the new Eye-fi SD cards. These cards are enabled to wirelessly transmit pictures to your computer or via a web based storage server.
The thieves were walking past a wi-fi hotspot with the camera switched on. The camera automatically uploaded the pictures one of which featureed the clueless trio. At home the woman turned on her file manager on the computer and recognised one of the restaurant staff in one of the beamed in photos.
The staff were sacked but the woman decided that was punishment enough and did not press charges.
