Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

An alleged X-Box 360 thief was tracked down after he forgot to disable the game console's auto sign-in feature before hopping on the net.

Jeremy Gilliam, 22, from the Bronx in New York City, was arrested after the victim of a theft noticed a gametag he had set up in a recently stolen console had appeared online. The victim told his parents who, in turn, notified the police.

Microsoft assisted in a subsequent investigation that led back to the internet connection for the house of Gilliam's grandmother. Police obtained a warrant and searched the premises where they found stolen games, laptops, and satnavs. Gilliam, who already faces car theft charges, was subsequently charged with burglary offences.

More on the story can be found in an article by the New York Post here and posts on gaming blogs. ®
