    This program looks pretty cool. It apparently has a password you must use to log in. If the user doesn't enter it, your macbook videos them and sends it to your email (I think it also collects the IP address, etc).

    Here's the web address:

    Anyone tried it?

    I use a similar program called Undercover 2.0. It's by Orbicule Software.

    I use iAlertU. However, i don't see much of an advantage for security systems like these. For me, best to get a security cable (a good one at that).
