HOUSTON Smart phones are expensive and that makes them a very popular target among thieves. But this is a story about a phone that s apparently smarter than the people who stole it.
Chau Nguyen was at the Galleria s Hello Kitty store with her children when she put her iPhone in her stroller pocket.
Within seconds, it was gone.
I turned around and said, My phone s missing and the clerk said, I saw some girls in here, Nguyen said. At that point, I called the phone company to turn off the phone.
The phone was turned off, but its camera wasn t. So imagine Nguyen s surprise when she noticed photos of complete strangers being automatically uploaded to her iCloud.
