LapCop 2

LapCop 2 is designed to provide a measure of security for users in the event their Macs are stolen. And despite the name, it'll work on desktop Macs as well as PowerBooks and iBooks. The software sends an "electronic beacon" to your e-mail address containing the Internet route it's connecting from, along with network settings -- enough data to track your Mac geographically.

LapCop 2 will automatically detect when it's been stolen and goes into "alarm mode." When it's connected using a modem, Ethernet or wireless network, it sends the stealth e-mail.

The new version works with the LapCop monitoring server, freeing LapCop from having to send e-mail itself (and thus freeing the software from needing access to a working SMTP server). More information is included, like the Mac's serial number and the IP address of the router the stolen Mac has connected through.
