After his family's Tennessee  home was burglarized, 8-year-old Landon Crabtree decided to do something about it. Among the items taken were two iPads. The clever kid did some  internet searching and found an app that would help him locate his stolen property. A modern day Encyclopedia Brown, right? (Side note: those  who get that reference may also  appreciate Wendy's recent blog about The Babysitter's Club.)

The app is called "Find my iPhone" and Landon was able to use it to track his iPad to a nearby hotel. Police were able to arrest the thief and recover Landon's iPads-- along with thousands of dollars in items from other burglaries.
