I have just seen Will Shipley's latest Blog posting (http://wilshipley.com/blog/2008/02/ted2008-part-1-gossip.html) and he says he has had his mac book stolen but he knows his MAC code, so he wants people to look out for it.
Well this got me thinking - what if everyone subscribes their laptop mac code to a website, and if it goes missing they flag it as stolen. Then working with people who provide WIFI services we have a little app which basically checks the list. If a stolen mac address is spotted then the police could be notified.
Just a thought - but I think this could be a really useful tool against laptop theft!
