Scupper the MacBook thief with Dropbox and Hazel

Posted on by Mike Evans

Thanks to 40Tech for this educational review of getting your own back on the thief of your MacBook. Using a combination of Dropbox and Noodlesoft’s Hazel file organiser, you can set a trap for the unwary thief that will include receiving a picture of the miscreant, finding out his location and wiping your ex-computer. I know there are commercial services that offer this, but it’s much more fun to do it yourself. I’ve been meaning to buy Hazel for ages and this has just caused my credit card to slip out of the wallet.
