Laptop recovery with a vengeance! The idea conjured up all sorts of wonderful fantasies. My laptop is stolen. I call a number and before the setting of the next sun, a swat team of heavily armed and armored paramilitary police are breaking down the door of a bandit's den to reclaim my purloined computer...Absolute Software's LoJack for Laptops used to be called CompuTrace, and now it's back with a new name and a new identity.... Load it onto your laptop, and it dials into a computer in Vancouver, it logs you on, registers your computer's serial number and who you are along with a password. Then, you sit back and wait for it to be stolen.... (by David A. Andelman, Forbes.com 19 Aug 2005)
