I haven't seen any reviews of people who actually had their laptop stolen so I figured I would share my experience from the last weekend. I was visiting my friend at college and had the laptop stolen during a party. The next morning it was clear it wasn't just misplaced so I activated the program and filed a police report. Nothing happend until that evening when the thief went online for the first time. The program takes a screenshot and webcam photo every 8 minutes and the battery was low so it took only 3 shots before powering down. The screenshots revealed nothing useful, he changed my wallpaper and browsed a few websites. The webcam photos revealed his face but no one recognized him. It wasn't until the computer was charged 2 days later that he went back online. This time the ip address revealed he was at a different college and was actually sitting it in class using it. I called the campus police at the school who recognized the classroom and recovered the laptop, the person who took it is facing felony burglary charges. I bought orbicule undercover a couple years ago, but it was the best investment I ever made.
