Oomph has released Sidekick 4.0 (http://oomphalot.com/sidekick), an update to the Mac application that automatically updates laptop settings based on where you are.

Formerly known as NetworkLocation, Sidekick is designed to make your laptop more secure, efficient, portable, and personalized by doing numerous small and tedious tasks for you. Sidekick controls a variety of settings on your Mac laptop and can auto-adjust them based on your location. Just install Sidekick and configure it for the places you frequent, (home, work, school, the coffee shop, etc.).

It runs quietly in the background and can be accessed through your laptop’s menu bar. Sidekick detects when you move to a new location, and automatically adjusts your settings however you see fit. If you open up your Mac at a place you’ve never been to before, you can use an existing Sidekick configuration, or set up a new one to suit your surroundings.

A 30-day demo is available for download. Registration is US$29.
