Very cool Apple MacBook theft recovery system

Undercover is spyware you install to locate and (hopefully) recover your Apple laptop if it gets stolen. Sort of like Lo-Jack, it starts sending IP telemetry, screenshots and even face shots of the thief once activated.

Also, something I did not know: apparently you can put a password on your firmware to prevent disk reformatting.

Makes me want to buy a MacBook just so I can buy this software. :-)
