Is your laptop and everything it it- safe from theft? Don't be too sure. Laptops are quickly becoming a number one target of thieves! But, now there seems to be something you can do to stop a thief in their (GPS) tracks!

Users launch MyLaptopGPS' features remotely, protecting data even while the machine is in a criminal's hands. Once connected to the Internet, the software silently retrieves, and then deletes, files from machines as it tracks the stolen or missing hardware -- at once returning the data to its rightful owner and removing it from the lost computer...more at Transworldnews
