With Mac computers, iPhones, iPads and iPods being very highly sought after, there is a handful of people that would do anything to get their hands on one. In light of this I have found a very cool product to help you get your stolen Apple property back.
Orbicule has a product called Undercover 5 which gives you everything possible to get your stolen device back.
Once installed on your Mac, every time the application is opened the exact location of the device is stored. You can log into your on-line account and open the application remotely to do this. You can view all of its previous locations as well as its current location.
Once activated for a Mac you can see screen shots, photos taken and everything that the thief has typed on your computer. Undercover makes it easy for you to lodge a police report with your local office by compiling all of the locations, screen shots and key log files together.
“Apple’s Find My device feature pales compared to Orbicule’s Undercover 5″
If all of that does not work, Undercover 5 has a very clever plan B. This causes the computer to ‘fail’ and hopefully forces the theif to take it in to get fixed. Then you can display a message on the screen informing the repairer that ‘this computer is stolen’.
Most people have heard of Consume by now, in fact we did a review of it when it first came out. It has become the industry standard usage app for the iOS. However Bjango has not updated it for sometime and is not natively iPad compatible, which is leading to a clunky and rather utilitarian UI.
However, there is now a new kid on the block. Quota (by SouthFreo) may be new, but it is sleek, sexy and worth a look.…Read More
John is at the chip shop. Mark is at the supermarket. Jane is on the loo. Yes, prepare for a flood of incredibly annoying location announcements from all your friends because Facebook has just flipped the switch on ‘Places’ for New Zealand – the location-aware feature announced last year that allows people with GPS-enabled mobile devices like the iPhone to announce their every movement, should they so wish. The service is live in the Facebook iPhone app right now, so if you’re that kind of person… get to it.…Read More
Any of you that have been with us from the start will know that Sygic Mobile Maps was one of the first turn-by-turn apps produced for New Zealand and the first that we ever reviewed, and well… let’s just say it holds a special place in our hearts. A year or so after Mobile Maps hit the store, Sygic launched a second turn-by-turn app, Aura.
Since the launch of Aura, both apps have happily co-existed side-by-side as two distinct products, allowing consumers to choose which of the two suits them most and purchase accordingly. Now, however, it would seem that Sygic have disowned their first-born, and will convert Mobile Maps to Aura via a software update whether you like it or not. While we’re certain that Sygic are rolling out with the best of intentions, we don’t think it’s right. Read on for our thoughts.…Read More
