Laptop or desktop, if your mac gets stolen it would suck. I saw this app on Versiontracker (checked only out of habit..) but upon looking it up at MacUpdate in today and yesterday's section, I was like, damn..they don't have it. So I tried a search of it and lo and behold..Oct 15th is when they had it! Same version and all...man....all doubt has been erased from my mind as to which is better! Time to delete VT from my favorites! <br><br>Anyway, the app is this:<br>http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/9617<br><br> LapCop is a new and innovative stealth software application. In case your Mac gets stolen, LapCop secretly transmits an electronic beacon to an e-mail address of your choice. This stealth e-mail, containing the internet route to your Mac, together with information about its network settings, provides enough information to accurately track your Mac geographically.<br><br>While most other stealth programs just send you a daily e-mail containing all information about your laptop status, LapCop works smarter. It automatically detects when your Mac is stolen and goes into alarm mode. Once your stolen Mac gets connected, even for a very short time, LapCop will send a stealth e-mail. With this stealth e-mail the chances of catching a thief are pretty high for the police and other authorities and your case will get priority.<br><br>Requirements:<br>Mac OS X 10.2 or later. <br><br><br>[color:red]Don't make me open this on you!</font color=red><br>
I found this proram months ago in versiontracker (freeware)<br><br>iFoundU <br><br>Description: <br><br>iFoundU is a small app to find the origin of an internet address or hostname.<br><br>How to install:<br><br>Simply drag the application icon to your harddisk, iFoundU is self contained and will not need to be grouped with any other tool or utility. <br><br>it sends you an email if your mac gets stolen = about the same thing...<br><br>Giaguara<br>
Hmmm..if it was on versiontracker, it's not there anymore. Tried searching for iFoundu, iFound, Found...nothing...<br><br>But...<br><br>Upon looking on MacUpdate, I found this<br><br> Lost and Found (Hopefully) X 1.4 <br> Lost and Found (Hopefully) is a script that runs behind the scenes and uses Sendmail to email you designed information about where you computer is currently located. Information in the email inclues the IP address, which if stolen, allows you to track down and find your computer. Uses Unix's "Sendmail" to send sneaky email messages to a designated email account that will contain information like your computer's IP address and other various information that will help you find your lost or stolen computer.<br><br>This version is compatible with 10.2<br><br>What's New:<br>Version 1.4 got rid of using AppleSystemProfiler in the Startup Item which caused trouble in 10.2. This update keeps Apple System Profiler from bouncing on the dock in 10.2 (Jaguar) <br><br><br>[color:red]Don't make me open this on you!</font color=red><br>
