Please rob me

A website that tells burglars when you’re not home


 

Staying connected 24/7 on social networking sites with friends and family has a big downside, especially for those using geolocation technology such as Foursquare. Since your every mobr is recorded minute by minute, burglars can use the information to break into your empty home and strip it bare. Now a Dutch site, called Please Rob Me, has just been launched that provides up-to-the-second information on your every move by coalating information from networking sites like Twitter into one handy-dandy location. The founders claim they are doing it to “warn” the technology obsessed of the danger of publicly announcing your every move.
