(Don't) Steal This Skype
We’ve always known that Skype users were smart, but we’d never heard of anyone using Skype and a bit of old-fashioned ingenuity to fool a computer thief–until today, that is. “Someone broke into my house and stole my laptop,” explains one intrepid user. “I always have Skype online on the laptop. I downloaded Skype onto my other PC, made a new account, and sent a chat request to my original account–and talked to the burglar. We set up a meeting, and I went with the police and caught the guy, thanks to Skype!”
A word to the wise: when it comes to free calls with Skype, crime certainly does not pay.
