Cool Technology of the Week

Stolen laptops can have a cost that far exceeds the repurchase or hardware or software.

There is lost work, lost important personal media (such as photographs of family), and possibly confidential data.   Hopefully any mobile device hosting patient data is encrypted.

Hidden App makes software that is analogous to a nanny cam.   Pictures and screen prints of your mobile device are secretly sent to a cloud-based server to assist in recovery of the device.  The cost is $15.00/year.

Here's a great USA Today case study that describes a successful laptop recovery.

A nanny cam for your mobile devices.  That's cool!

You might want to try out GotoCamera's free webcam software. GotoCamera is EASY to set up and easy to use. All you need is a webcam (a USB webcam such as those made by Logitech, Creative, etc, or even the webcam integrated into your netbook / notebook) and a Windows PC, and you’re ready to start. Once your camera is set up, you can turn on recording schedules, configure motion detection, share your camera with family, and access it from any browser, including your iPhone, so that you can remotely monitor your camera's recordings. You can watch over your children any time you wish. This is perfect for people who can't afford a nanny to watch over their kids when they're away from home. At less than $4 a month, it makes complete sense to me. Give it a shot, try their 1 week free trial and let me know how it goes :)
