Track your missing laptop with Adeona

Lots of negative opinions...but I know from first hand experience that thieves indeed are often stupid, and they often know you personally before they steal your stuff. So I see a use case here. If I did get my macbook stolen and someone cracked my password and/or the filevault that houses my homedir (neither is very likely), I'd be happier to find out where to go to get my macbook than to just have the satisfaction of knowing some arbitrary script formatted my hard drive after three failed password attempts.

Just one man's opinion.
