LoJack Alternatives?

June 23, 2008

Wondering what alternatives are out there for Mac laptop security in addition to LoJack, DynDNS and the staid but true Kensington laptop security cable.

I’ve heard there are some accessories that can be installed in the computer to effectively pin-point its location for recovery purposes. Wonder if these are PCMCIA or if they fit inside the laptop and work their magic? Also, I’d be interested in ways to script a wiping of the entire home directory in the event the machine fell into the wrong hands.

I’m sure the audience won’t disappoint. Supply links for extra credit please :)

U720, EVDO, MacBook Pro

From my buddy RDent, aka ARDent, aka RD

OK, we have now been ablr to get out PwerBook G4 in the lab to work with the U720 with the “tweaking” from EVDOInfo.com. However, this will not be supported for customers due to the fact that it requires mods, etc. The fix is from: http://www.evdoforums.com/viewtopic.php?p=21155#21155

THIS is a BFD IMHO. Lots of traffic to the gWHIZ blog over the past 6 months looking for mobile Macs + EVDO + U720. Hope this makes someone’s day. And a humungous thanks to RD!
