Ken Westin from GadgetTrak left me a comment in my entry about the recovery of a stolen MacBook Pro. GadgetTrak is the maker of MacTrak, an anti-theft software for Mac OS X.

MacTrak boasts of advanced WiFi positioning, Flickr integration and privacy and tamper proof features.

When your Mac gets stolen you can use the web based activation feature to activate tracking. The next time your Mac connects to the internet it will activate MacTrak. The software will start sending data to you.

The software uses the built-in camera of Macs to take pictures of the thief. It will send the photos to your Flickr account along with other information. The images are set to private but you can also configure it to be public.

The software is $59.95. It might seem like a steep price to pay for something that you may not use. However, I’m sure you’ll be thankful if this helps recover your Mac.
