Hi, I recently left my macbook pro in a taxi. I know so utterly stupid of me. The next day i went to the police and told them where i got the taxi, what time, colour and type of taxi etc and gave them the serial number of it.
You see I had Find My iPhone installed on it. However it still says no one has connected to the internet on my laptop. (It only shows the location once someone is connected to the internet). I also had Dropbox installed which has a similar feature like this, it shows the last ip address on the computer but it says none has been used since before i left it in the taxi.
My question is, what do thieves normally do when they steal a laptop? Do they just wipe the whole system (which would cause Find My iPhone not to work?) Should i give up hope? Thanks
