How To Catch A Console Thief
Posted on Tuesday, December 16 @ 17:34:52 PST by Duke_FerrisIt may not work for us because I doubt that PS3 will function after the abuse it was subjected to, but if anyone can get our console back, it's Ryan Kestenberg.
The Missouri State student's Xbox 360 was recently stolen, according to their student newspaper's website. However, much like our thieves here at GR, they failed to take the controllers.
So by walking around the dorm building and noting where the controller would disconnect (at a range of about 30 feet) he was able to triangulate the location of his stolen Xbox.
The controller connected to the Xbox on the fourth, fifth and sixth floors of Hutchens but not on the third floor and seventh floor, so through process of elimination, Ketsenburg said he figured out that the stolen Xbox must be on the fifth floor.Elementary, my dear Watson.
Following the controller's signal, Ketsenburg said he was able to pinpoint the room where his Xbox was stolen.
So Ketsenberg got his 360 back, and plans to prosecute the thief to the full extent of the law. Awesome.
Now all we have to do is take our PS3 controller and drive around Oakland until the little red light stops flashing...
And while this has nothing to do with it, the WoW shoe attack must be seen.
