Kind of useless since all it takes for the thief to do is a complete format of the computer, no? The reinstall should be easy as nearly all laptops have the Windows product key on the bottom. Just my two cents.
You still have to instal Norton Anti-Theft right? on all three platforms if you want them recovered, if they ever got stolen.
Can you imagine the cheesy line"Sneak Peek" that is used, a snap shot taken at the wrong time could end up on the norton website. Wouldn't we love to see all those sneak peeks....
So if the thief takes your laptop but doesn't go on the internet then he's safe right? Also I'm sure "locking" the computer just means putting a password and not encrypting the hard drive or locking the bios. So you can just pop in a live cd (like ubuntu) and have unlimited access.
also tracks and maps the location of the stolen/lost device when anyone uses it to go online
So how will this fair against nearly all laptops that doesn't have GPS built it? IP can only approximate the city its in unless the police gets a warrant to ask the ISP for who that is (highly unlikely).
