This image described by iPhone, MobileMe, find my iphone

Gizmodo has a couple of new stories about how the victims of iPhone thefts used the "Find My iPhone" feature of MobileMe to recover their handsets and/or bust the perpretrators. 

Back in June, a reader recounted how, after his iPhone had been boosted from a bar, he and his friends not only tracked it down, but brazenly confronted the thieves and retrieved the phone themselves.  (Kids, do NOT try this at home!)

Just last week, Pittsburgh police took three iRobbers into custody after their victim used FMi to locate their hideout, then dropped a dime on 'em to the gendarmes.

And both iPhone owners are probably thinking the same thing: "MobileMe is the best $99/year I've ever spent."
