Track your Phone / Laptop using Prey

Now you can track your stolen laptop / phone (but not iPhone yet) for free using an open source software called Prey. It is a very small & lightweight software that can be installed on your Mac, Windows, Linux or Ubuntu Laptop or your Android smart Phone. Set it up and then you can wake it up in case your device is (God forbid) stolen. There are paid Pro version too for those who want a greater feature set and active monitoring.
This was recently used by self professed Info Sec Evangelist Greg Martin to track his stolen MacBook in the aftermath of the London riots.
