Tracking Images via GPS

Here's a very interesting story.  A hacker was recently apprehended by the FBI based on the photo of the, ahermm... "assets" of his girlfriend.  As it turned out, he took the photo using his iPhone which embeds GPS information in the metadata section of the image file.  Not being aware of it, he posted the image to taunt the authorities.  I guess you can say he committed a "boo-boo".
