Tracking service for stolen laptops
A new, free service is helping laptop users track down their computer if it is stolen.
The system called Adeona anonymously sends data to servers on a free storage system.
The data, which is encrypted, includes IP addresses and information about neighboring routers. So, if your notebook ever gets stolen, you can log into the system from another computer, access the data and give the information to authorities. Working with an internet service provider, they should be able to trace the laptop.
The program works on Windows and Apple computers.
