GadgetTrak Laptop Security... Think about the things you have on your laptop right now: Countless photos, financial records, software, music, videos, etc. The hefty price tag on your laptop is probably dwarfed by the value of the information on it.

The really scary part is that according to the FBI, 1 in 10 laptops purchased today will be stolen within the next 12 months. Sadly, only 3% will be returned.

GadgetTrak dramatically increases the likelihood of finding your laptop, by pinpointing its location, and even sending a photo of thief.

    This seems like a decent theft protection utility. However, after subscribing for a year, I attempted to contact the developer multiple times with some questions about renewing. I NEVER got a reply. They just kept sending me renewal notices. Why should anyone trust this developer to help out when I need it when they do not respond?

    GadgetTrak does not work with Mac OS X Lion (fails to start)
    e-mail support is useless: I submitted 3 support requests both over e-mail and gadget trak web site; and received no response

    How does this app get three stars when there is one solitary comment which doesn't even have a star rating capability?

    Nevermind... looks like ratings are now on their own separate tab.

    Hello,
    It appears that the downloadable version is full implementation, requiring the purchase registration number. The setup paragraph of the user manual provides no mention of a demo mode.

    If I install it, I won't get to test/evaluate it until after paying the shareware fee. There is a comment on another website about the lack of a demo version. Unlike that user, I'll refrain from attempting a "star" rating on a product I have yet to try out.

    There is a big plus that I'd like to mention. Where GadgetTrak documentation describes that the product is for both the Mac and the PC; they state "Mac" first, then "PC", unlike many other developers who do the opposite. Thank you, developers, for recognizing that the Mac comes first.

    Recommendation: Developer provide either a demo version of the software or a simulation version; if demo, don't cripple it, just use an expiration date.
