Thief Steals iPhone While Victim Is Participating In GPS Tracking Demo - The Consumerist

Unrelated to anything BIM, but the use of technology compelled me to share this with you. Can we add GPS tracking to Revit families in case people steal your personally created families?

On Monday, a man in San Francisco rode his bike up to a woman holding an iPhone and snatched it out of her hand, then took off. What he didn't know was that the woman had just walked out of her company's office to test a new GPS program that provides real time tracking. She went back inside, gave the police location updates over the phone, and man was arrested a half-mile away, reports the San Francisco Chronicle's Crime Scene blog.
