Thousands of laptops are lost or stolen each year. People leave them in taxis, trains, hotels and coffee shops, and they’re a prime target by thieves as well. Put your laptop bag down for a minute and a thief might snatch it when you aren’t looking, and a laptop left on your car seat is a huge temptation for opportunistic thieves.

Of course, you stand to lose more than just the hardware. The thief or finder could access personal files and information and even steal your identity.

There is little chance of recovering a lost or stolen laptop unless you take precautions. It’s good practice to make a record of any serial numbers printed on the case that can help identify it. This information can be passed on to the police, lost and found departments at train stations, or wherever you last remember having it. Having this extra information should speed up your laptop’s return if it turns up.

So, I was able to really survey the situation. There is absolutely no sign of voles. No holes, no mounds, no damage. I actually have black… View Article

As FrontDoorSoftware has shown already; just because a product is free doesn't mean features necessarily have to be cut. Prey is a feature-rich and stable open-source program.

As we've seen in some fantastic Linux distros, there are a lot of very talented coders out there. First impressions of Prey are that it has a professional and good-looking interface that manages to easily eclipse FrontDoorSoftware.
