Laptop & Smartphone Theft Reaches Epidemic Levels, Blackberry and Iphone Highly Prized

– New York – As the economy spirals into a recession, theft of smartphones and laptops is becoming a growth industry. Why?

Well, simple: Thieves love laptops and smartphones. They are expensive, easy to hide and store incredible amounts of information. In fact, more often than not, the information on a laptop or mobile device is more valuable than the device itself and that is what the thief is going after.

Fortunately, innovative anti-theft software like the patented, GadgetTrak use advanced Wi-Fi positioning technology, to pinpoint the location of your laptop or mobile device, usually down to within a few meters.

“GadgetTrak is a thief’s worse nightmare”, says Matrix Thompson, VP,

“In addition to giving you the ability to wipe a device clean of valuable data, Gadget operates in silence, tracking the location of the thief and will snap a photo of him or her, and send it to your FlickR account.”

This is a crucial bit of evidence that the police can use to get your equipment back.

“GadgetTrak is also a perfect gift”, adds Thompson.  

“The software is like car insurance. You may think it is unnecessary if you never meet with an accident. However, if you car crashes you are glad you made the investment. GadgetTrak secures your data, and helps the police to apprehend the thief who violated you.”

GadgetTrak is available for Blackberry, Android, Mac and Window devices and costs only $34.95. It is available for purchase at
