What I'd like to see is a GPS device with wireless communication to my cell phone. It can be a quiet indicator, or perhaps ring when it is being moved.. or even when I move too far away from it.

Well that would probably not be in line with the new EU regulation 1820bla and definetly against all privacy laws. Cause even the bad guys have the right to not be spied on while stealing goods.

You can find the article at: http://www.canada.com/vancouver/story.html?id=511952d3-89a0-4a03-a092-be29eaeb346f

Fair enough but I guess nowadays especially in big cities your "petty" crime is run by organizations that have quite good "runners" :) So them students should team up with the sports department to make you a better runner. The good thing is you know immediatly that it's gone so might leave you a chance to catch the thief. Strong Crypto and regular backups will save you a lot of trouble even when your laptop gets stolen...

till then,

Steve Clement
