Found a coworker's unattended Mac? Let us freak em out (err prank em out).

Open the terminal app and type:
crontab -e

Append:
*/30 * * * * say -v whisper "I am watching you"

Save and close the file. You're welcome. Linux user replace say with espeak command ;). Credit https://twitter.com/JZdziarski/...

    You could also randomize it a little. If it's every half hour it could be easily assumed that it's on the crontab, but randomizing the timing a bit could make it tricker for them.

    @sheeponmeth unless they are a n00b and have no idea what crontab is! But yes I like it!

    This is much worse:
    espeak -v whisper < Something.java
