Hi everyone,
A friend of mine lost a laptop the other day and unfortunately, there was no way to locate it . It got me thinking about solutions for locating stolen laptops or for that matter, most electronic hardware. Most of the solutions that I've come across e.g Adeona at do not impress me much because all it would take is a software(O.S) re-formatting and the tracking application is gone. The privacy part of Adeona is impressive though.
What I would like to know is, does anyone know of a hardware solution that could be used, such that even if the machine is formatted it would still be able to send location information to a server or some email? (I've seen someone who actually included a pet tracking chip on their laptop, well hidden from view!).
