Don't steal my Mac

Mac OS X 10.6 comes with CoreLocatation. Which is implemented as a command line program here:

So... just "wget --spider "$(/Users/fulld/Applications/CoreLocationCLI -once)" 2> /dev/null" in your crontab

And put one of these on your server:

  # URL like:

  $file = preg_replace('/[^a-z]/', '', $_SERVER['PATH_INFO']);
  $info = preg_replace('/#<>/', '', urldecode($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']));

  file_put_contents("cache/ping_$file", $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']."\n$info\n");


RESULT: Computer phones home every few minutes to report it's physical location.


Do this on your iPhone too with information at
