FETC Gadget Roundup

For those worried about their Mac products being stolen, Orbicule offers a fool-proof safety net. If your laptop is stolen, alert Orbicule, which will secretly track the machine’s IP address. It will also use a Mac’s built-in camera to take snapshots every six minutes and mail the pictures to your eMail, so you have an idea of what the thief looks like. Eventually it will dim the screen to make it look like screen failure, in the hopes the thief will take it to a Mac Store. However, upon entering the store, the screen begins flashing a message alerting Mac employees that it’s been stolen, as well as blaring “Stolen!” at the highest volume permitted by the device.
