Joshua Alston’s home was burglarized while he was in the shower. His notebook was stolen, but fortunately he was able do some digital detective work to help police recover it. He used an application called LogMeIn to remotely see what the burglar looked like, install Lojack For Laptops and ultimately guide police to the culprit’s apartment.
It is of course best to install LoJack for Laptops prior to your notebook being stolen. Joshua wrote about his experience at Newsweek.com in detail.
