Someone stole your iPhone. You cry a little bit. You remind yourself that it's just a material object and you have your health and a loving family. You cry a little bit because you didn't back up your photos. And then you spend an hour looking for cheap refurbished iPhones on eBay.

Or if your dad's a police chief, you get an army of police officers to go look for it.

Berkeley police chief Michael Meehan ordered 10 of his police officers, some from the Drugs Task Force, to follow the trail of his son's iPhone tracking software, knocking door to door in north Oakland, with no success, reports a local website, Berkleyside.
