Prey!

Hello guys, back after the long off-time of Blogger.com.

Today i read about an interesting open source software that could be interesting for everyone.
An interesting scenario took its place in New York/Canada

The SEO-Expert Sean Power was currently in Canada as somebody in Soho turned on his notebook what got stolen a few days ago.
So Sean is a user of the Powerfull Open-Source tool Prey.


Any mobile phone with open-source software running on could get in use of prey.


By the way, Sean got his notebook back, he ordered someone on twitter to get to the place his notebook was last spottet by prey. The police officers of New York dont mentioned to help him, cause he has not reported early enough that it got stolen.

Twitter could be real usefull in the future though as we see in this case  ;)
