LapCop: smarter than thieves

LapCop: smarter than thieves

Belgium, October 15, 2002 – SweetCocoa is proud to announce LapCop a new
and innovative stealth software application. In case your Mac gets stolen,
LapCop secretly transmits an electronic beacon to an e-mail address of your
choice. This stealth e-mail, containing the internet route to your Mac,
together with information about its network settings, provides enough
information to accurately track your Mac geographically.

Laptop theft has reached epidemic proportions worldwide: there were 591,000
laptops stolen in the USA in the year 2001 and according to a recent FBI
report, 97% of all stolen computers are never recovered. That’s why
programs similar to LapCop have seen a heavy demand on other platforms
during the past months. Since Macs are very popular among thieves, we
decided to develop LapCop. While most other stealth programs just send you
a daily e-mail containing all information about your laptop status, LapCop
works smarter. It automatically detects when your Mac is stolen and goes
into alarm mode. Once your stolen Mac gets connected, even for a very short
time, LapCop will send a stealth e-mail. With this stealth e-mail the
chances of catching a thief are pretty high for the police and other
authorities and your case will get priority.

LapCop is written from the ground up for Mac OS X 10.2 or later. Feedback
from beta testers has been incredibly positive. They suggested LapCop is
worth $30. Because we don’t want Mac users to break the bank to protect
their Mac, LapCop is available now for only $15. You can download LapCop
for free from the SweetCocoa website. However, for safety reasons, LapCop
will only start monitoring your Mac after registration.
