One woman has found Apple's Back To My Mac feature (part of .Mac) to be extremely useful in helping to capture a pair of laptop thieves.

Police say the woman got a call from a friend asking if she was online.
The victim said no and was told by the friend that her computer showed her as being on the Internet.

At that point the victim signed onto another computer and used the "Back to My Mac" program to determine that her stolen MacIntosh laptop was on the Web.

She then used the stolen computer's camera to photograph [one of the suspects].
Police have made two arrests and have recovered most of the $5,000 worth of electronics stolen from the woman's apartment in late April.
