    John Zorabedian has an interesting piece up over at Sophos' Naked Security blog explaining Why “find my phone” apps keep sending people to one Atlanta couple’s house... and isn’t because they’re stealing phones:

    People searching for their lost and stolen smartphones in the vicinity of Atlanta, Georgia, keep turning up at the home of Christina Lee and Michael Saba.

    It happens quite a bit: about 12 times in the past year, people have showed up at Lee and Saba’s home asking for their lost/stolen devices, sometimes belligerently, because of a quirk in the phone tracking technology in recent versions of iPhone and Android.

    One time it was the police, who were searching for a missing person by tracing her phone, which led them to the couple’s home.
