"Prey: A new hope"

A combination of inspiration from reading about the tool, Prey, and an email from Hakin9 mag's editor prompted me to write a new article.
An excerpt from my new article.
"Misplaced your laptop or had it stolen? You are not alone. Dell and the
Ponemon Institute collaborated on a study with 106 United States airports
as well as over 800 business travelers to ascertain the frequency with which
laptops are lost in airports."

Prey

Ever worried about your laptop getting lost? There's a software called "Prey" that can ease your fears. It is a utility that lets you know where your laptop is and can be installed on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
It is easy to setup. Register with the Prey website then enter the API and device key information into the configuration window to start the agent.
