Gateway puts a trace on laptops

@ 2005/08/11
Gateway is plugging two security devices into its machines, including a LoJack-style technology to help customers track down lost or stolen laptops.

The Mobile Theft Protection product is now available in Gateway's M250, M460 and M680 notebooks, the PC maker said on Tuesday. The hardware, which uses technology from Absolute Software's Computrace, promises to locate computers that have gone astray. It includes a so-called Data Delete feature that removes sensitive personal or corporate data by remote control.
