I came across a pretty interesting I came across a pretty interesting on I came across a pretty interesting I came across a pretty interesting on today. It posed the question of preemptive things one can

do to protect a Macbook against theft. Despite having had a Mac since I

started college, I’ve never done more to protect it from theft than buy a

Kensington lock to hook to my desk (that I never used). Needless to say, I’m

fairly unprepared and incredibly vulnerable.

Clearly any portable computer is at risk of theft, and while the hardware

itself is considerably more valuable to the thief than the data on the

machine, the opposite is true for me. I can replace a computer, but I can’t

replace lost data. This is easily enough solved (hello, [Time

Machine]3), but

I’d rather have a situation where I don’t have to.
