Protect your laptop by installing a software that says "Stolen Computer!" or a screen that displays "You are being tracked. I am right at your door." Tell those thieves exactly what you think of them using Front Door Software Corp.'s Retriever program.

From frontdoorsoftware:

You can log on to a Web site and check a box indicating the computer is missing. Now during start-up, a big yellow and red banner appears on the screen, boldly declaring the laptop lost or stolen. This message is set to reappear every 30 seconds, no matter how many times the thief closes the window.

You can remotely switch on a second password prompt if you fear the thief has also stolen your regular Windows, Macintosh or Linux login.

Behind the scenes, Retriever uses built-in Wi-Fi to sniff out nearby networks, then suss out what Internet service providers power them. With that information in hand, you can file a police report and get help locating the criminal.

While waiting for law enforcement to come through, you can even let off steam by sending new messages to the nagging "Stolen Computer!" screen.

The latest version of Retriever, which costs $29.95 for three years of use, is even more aggressive.

Now, when the "stolen" screen pops up, the laptop cries for help. Use a canned message ("Help, this laptop is reported lost or stolen. If you are not my owner, please report me now.") or record your own.

Pocket Retriever from Amazon Store.

You can now constantly connect your Lenovo laptop with your Blackberry phone even when the computer is off or in standby mode.

Read the story "Sleeping Lenovo laptops to get BlackBerry e-mail":

[quote] Even with it is turned off, a new ThinkPad laptop will be able to talk to a BlackBerry phone so their owner will be able to read and send e-mail faster, the companies behind the devices planned to announce Monday.

Lenovo Group Ltd., maker of the ThinkPad, and Research In Motion Ltd., maker of the BlackBerry, have together created an accessory card for the laptops that will wirelessly download e-mail through the owner's BlackBerry, even when the computer is off or in standby mode.

That means that when the ThinkPad boots up, new e-mail will already be loaded. There's no need to establish a secure Internet connection to the employer's servers. The user will also be able to send e-mail from the ThinkPad through the BlackBerry without an additional Internet connection.

The "Lenovo Constant Connect" card will let users combine the always-on nature of the BlackBerry with the larger keyboard and screen of the laptop, said Rick Cheston, executive director at Lenovo. For instance, a traveler could flip open the laptop to do some quick e-mailing at an airport layover, rather than spending time to set up Internet access, he said.

The card will cost $150 or less when Lenovo starts selling it in the second quarter in the U.S. It will be available in the rest of the world later this year. Initially it will work only with Microsoft Corp.'s Outlook e-mail client, but Lenovo is working on supporting IBM Corp.'s Lotus Notes as well, Cheston said.

ThinkPads made last summer or later will be compatible with the Constant Connect card, and BlackBerrys made in the last few years will work with it, he added.

The card connects to a BlackBerry through the Bluetooth wireless technology. When the computer is off, the card stores new e-mail in flash memory.

It is already possible to connect a computer to the Internet through the Bluetooth feature of some phones, but this is a more lengthy, complicated process, and the computer must be fully on. [/quote]

Sony Vaio P is a netbook. But the price of $899 for Sony Vaio P does not sound like it is, at least when compared to other netbooks out there. Would you shell out few more hundred bucks to get this mini-laptop?
You should take a second look. Sony Vaio P has a good keyboard, and an 8 inch display screen and a high 1600 x 768 pixel resolution. It also has built in GPS (other netbooks don't have this feature) and a built in 3G modem which can be used with the Verizon Wireless high speed mobile network in the US.

Speaking of Verizon Wireless, if you decide to buy a Sony Vaio P and sign up for a 2 year Verizon Wireless service contract before March 31st, you can get the netbook for $200 less.

What do you think? Are you ready to buy a $699 Sony Vaio P?
