On Friday I mentioned the new security system software released called "iAlertU"
I've been playing with it and I like it ...
There are a few bugs:
Essentially you can just turn the alarm down by hitting the mute button on the keyboard ... but this could be disabled easily.
You could simply close the top of the Macbook instead of picking it up - this would put the Macbook to sleep instead of tripping the alarm. Again, this is something that could be fixed.
All of the bugs I have found would require knowledge of such a "security system" or knowledge of the Mac OS - which most criminals lack ... or at least lack with quick wit in a "dash and grab".
I have seen some sites saying that you could use any "Front Row" remote to shut it off ... but Apple's "Front Row" remotes CAN be paired to individual Macbooks, iMacs, and MacMinis ... see this Apple website page.
This is an amazing utility ... I just hope that its makers decide to offer it for remote control by Bluetooth as well (being able to use it with Salling Clicker)
