Tracking your stolen UMPC

adeonalogoEvery year thousands of Laptops are stolen or lost in USA along and you could become part of these statistics. Are you prepared if this happens? What can you do? Should you pay hundreds for a tracking software? What if I tell you that you can track the location of your UMPC without paying a penny. And that's exactly what Adeona is promising.

Adeona is the first Open Source system for tracking the location of your lost or stolen laptop that does not rely on a proprietary, central service. This means that you can install Adeona on your laptop and go — there's no need to rely on a single third party. What's more, Adeona addresses a critical privacy goal different from existing commercial offerings. It is privacy-preserving. This means that no one besides the owner (or an agent of the owner's choosing) can use Adeona to track a laptop. Unlike other systems, users of Adeona can rest assured that no one can abuse the system in order to track where they use their laptop.

I have been testing this program in my P1610 and it's amazing to see how I can recover the IP address and ISP  used to connect to Internet. Knowing the IP you can contact the Police and they can demand from the Internet Service Provider (ISP) the information about who is using or used that IP. That simple.

Adeona is a "Must Have" in any mobile device.
