Poor Macbook thieves

Thieves had stolen a set of Macbooks from a school in the northern Sweden according to this Swedish newspaper:

Macbooktjuvar klev rakt i fällan - IDG.se

However, what they did not know was that software from Orbicule had been installed. With this software they could among other things identify the computers new IP addresses and send pictures of the thieves from the built-in webcam. Then it was easy for the police to identify the thieves and capture them.

That is kind of an intrusion response system!

I love the new MacBook Air. MacBooks are so cool.
