  1. Hello. My PC Got stolen some days ago, some a-hole broke into my house and robbed me.
    Meh, anyways. Does anyone know how to track a PC? I Bought a new pc and i dont want to go through this over again. Lets just hope this doesnt happen again.
    I Want to buy something that helps me locate it in case someone robs it again. Does anyone knows something about something to track my pc remotely? Not software please :D

    Thanks a lot!

    Sorry, there's no way to do it. And if there was, wouldn't that make you angry anyway? Imagine if anyone could track anyone who was on the Internet and what they're doing.

    You can get GSM tracking bugs for about $150.
    That can be used in conjunction with your cell phone.

    The problem is,the (bug) battery will run out just at the
    moment your PC is stolen. :rolleyes:

    With all the laptops that go missing with people's personal identifying information on them. a tracking device like this might be helpful. But like other technical advancements, it would be open to abuse.
