An iPhone developer was testing a new real-time GPS tracking system.

Covia Labs CEO David Kahn sent intern for a walk outside to demo the software.

Police say Horatio Toure snatched it and sped away on a bicycle. Kahn was

immediately struck by how quickly the image began moving down the street.
Police arrested Toure nine minutes later.
