    [news=http://www.everdream.com/images/logo.gif]Desktop management service provider Everdream on Tuesday announced a service that makes it possible to encrypt or delete data even after a laptop has gone missing.

    The new Everdream "Theft Recovery Managed Service" allows organizations to retain control over lost or stolen PCs and laptops, the Fremont, Calif., company said in a statement. The service also can assist law enforcement with the tracking, locating and recovery of computers, the company said.

    When a missing PC is connected to the Internet, it automatically contacts Everdream. This triggers encryption or deletion of data on the computer, based on the customer's setting, Everdream said.

    You could always format the drive or replace it. But more than likely it will be the buyer that gets caught not the thief/seller. Besides that, whats to stop a thief in the know from just deleting the software prior to going on line.
