Prey: track your stolen laptop or Android phone
Just found this new software that seems to be pretty cool.
Prey is a lightweight application that will help you track and find your laptop and android phone if it ever gets stolen. It works in all operating systems and not only is it Open Source but also completely free. so basically you install a tiny agent in your PC or phone, which silently waits for a remote signal to wake up and work its magic.
I might have to give this a try.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
Just remember, if you can track your phone, others can track you! Then again, a cell phone can always be tracked, if you really want to, as long as it is turned on and not in "airplane" mode.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

- Here. There. Anywhere.
I'm actually designing a sort of Faraday backpack to protect my electronics from big brother tracking the impending nuclear EMP interference, and in case I need something to crawl into during a lightning storm. (...some uses are more practical than others.)
Can anyone vouch for the service on wifi-only services? I'm not going to have cellular service for my Android platform for a while, but I'm not against installing such a thing as this if it can still work for me.
