Absolute Software launches Computrace LoJack for Macs



LOJack For Laptops website

Here's a press release sent to my inbox this morning. This site, formerly known as Jackwhispers was partnered with TrackYourMac software ... but the developer of the software mysteriously disappeared about a year and a half ago and stopped developing and updating the database. This is a welcome replacement. I will try to see if Absolute will partner with this site so I can get readers some good deals on this service.

Absolute Software launches Computrace LoJack for Macs

July 19 - 10:17 EDT Absolute Software today announced the release of its Macintosh version of Computrace LoJack for Laptops, a laptop security tracking solution that locates and recovers lost or stolen computers. The new Mac version can be purchased directly through Apple retail stores, major retailers throughout North America and directly from Absolute Software. In the event of computer theft or loss, Computrace LoJack for Laptops silently contacts Absolute's Monitoring Center when the computer connects to the Internet. The embedded software provides the stolen computer's IP address and other networking information to Absolute's Theft Recovery Team which works with local law enforcement to identify its physical location and recover the computer. If a stolen laptop is not recovered within 30 days, Absolute Software will refund the purchase of Computrace LoJack for Laptops. The price per unit for one year of service is US$49.99.
