Anti-theft software debuts

Orbicule has released its anti-theft protection software, dubbed . After a theft occurs, Undercover reveals the internet location of the Mac and transmits screenshots at regular intervals of the device in-use, enabling owners to closely monitor their stolen property. In the event that recovery fails, the application will simulate a hardware failure, gradually making the Mac's screen unusable. The erratic behavior is accompanied by a Mac OS X system message stating that a hardware failure has been detected, ideally urging the thief to bring the Mac to an authorized Apple reseller. At that point Undercover will show a full-screen message alerting the reseller--or someone who bought the Mac from the thief--that the machine has been stolen, that it has become unusable, and that it needs to be returned as soon as possible. Undercover 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4 and is priced at $30.
