Eye-Fi Card “Phones Home” for Owner to Recover Lost Camera

Eye-Fi Share Memory Card

Here’s a case of a stolen camera “phoning home” and eventually reuniting with its rightful owner.

Alison DeLauzon’s camera was stolen during a vacation and thought she had lost it forever. But the Eye-Fi-equipped camera got in touch with her by uploading the photos of the guys who swiped her camera.

It turns out that the Eye-Fi wireless memory card was configured to automatically upload photos to the user’s site when it detects a suitable network.
