Macbook and iMac owners, breathe easy! If your computer gets stolen, you can get it back!
There's a new Mac app called Hidden, which provides the following service, as described on its website:
"If your computer is stolen, Hidden will show you where it is and who has it."
And here's a testimonial about the service from Brad Reisner at Charitybuzz:
"We had a Mac ‘misplaced’ at a charity event so we logged into hiddenapp.com, marked the laptop stolen and followed the Google Maps dots. When we went to retrieve it the person who ‘found’ it had ripped all the company stickers off. Best $20 I've ever spent."
So cool! And given the fact that it only costs $15/year, we'd say this is def worth the peace of mind!
What do U think? Would U sign up for this service?
