If you’ve got a Mac computer that you’d like to secure against theft–or at least be able to track down should it go missing–Mac-tracking tool Hidden is free until January 2011.
Normally $20, Hidden is free until the end of next month. You install the app on your Mac and activate it from another computer or your smartphone when your computer goes missing. Hidden sends you pictures of the person in front of the camera, sports location awareness to pinpoint them, and captures screenshots of activity on the computer so you can see what the thief is doing with your computer (and if they’re stupid enough to access their personal accounts even gather information about them).
