    Exclamation Stolen Macbook Pro
    Hi everyone,

    My Macbook pro was stolen and I have iCloud activated on the computer. Fortunately, I can see the approximate location of my macbook because it frequently connects to the internet, and it has been in the same place for the entire period that it has been missing. It's only about 20 minutes away form where I live.

    Yes its tracking via IP addresses. Similar issue happened to us with our iPhone 4 that was boosted from our gym bag at the gym. I was able to see where it was, then it went blank. If someone went through the prefs, deleted your MobileMe/iCloud settings, you'll never see it online again. So it just shows the last position it was online. Really sucks! And its heart breaking. Only thing id advise, is if you do go around the location, don't approach, confront or speak to anyone. Try not to look suspicious, cause you don't know what crazies your working with. And your safety is #1.

    Bummer. So close, and yet so far away...

    I have no advice but wish you the best of luck.
    Never judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.
