LoJack comes to Macs
Computrace has announced a Mac-compatible version of its LoJack for Laptops tracking software, designed to help track down stolen laptops. The application detects that theft has taken place and transmits it's location to a server whenever a connection to the internet is available. When the LoJack central system is alerted that the laptop is stolen, law enforcement officers are informed as to the latest location of the laptop. LoJack requires a Mac OS X 10.3 or later, a Web browser such as Safari or Firefox, and an internet connection. A single year license is priced at $50, and users must pay on a yearly (or up to four years per payment) basis to maintain service.
