London has experienced some pretty rough and bewildering times recently -- residents rioted for several days, destroying several buildings and stirring up a lot of questions. It is the unfortunate nature of riots that some people get hurt and some things get stolen; in this case it was the laptop of Greg Martin, 29, who was visiting from Texas. Upon noticing that his laptop was somehow lifted out of the apartment he was staying in, Martin didn't panic -- at least not too much, that is.
Martin had mobile security software installed on his computer; this allowed him to turn on his computer's webcam to take a picture of the thief, as well as write down the precise coordinates his laptop was being kept at. After giving all this information to the police, all Martin had to go was sit back and wait.
The police recovered the stolen laptop and charged the 18-year old who had it with handling stolen goods. What a great day it is when one is prepared to handle a bad situation! By turning on a webcam and being able to see exact coordinates, something that could have been a terrible experience turned out into a smooth ride -- albeit one a bit too exciting.
Notebak does all of these great things for you, so get prepared today and enjoy having the upper hand should the situation ever arise -- surely, Martin was feeling pretty good about himself.
