    Angry Tracking Software

    This past weekend my Transformer tablet was stolen from my vehicle. Merry Christmas, eh?

    My ex-wife had thrown away the box and the only other place that the serial number is located is on the actual device. Useless if it's stolen or missing.

    Luckily, I was able to find my serial number through some major file searching on my desktop machine. ASUS didn't even know that the serial could be stored on computers! Once I found my serial number, ASUS directed me to a website, Device Tracker. That will locate the device on a map. I haven't been able to locate my tablet yet. It requires a finger pattern to open and it needs to be connected to the internet in order for it to be tracked via the website. ASUS told me that the majority of stolen tablets get sold to pawn shops who then erase them etc. So I'm hoping against hope that it will turn up eventually.

    I also hope that website can help any folks out there in case this happens to you as well, which I certainly hope it never does.

    Anyway, to get back on topic this has made me consider tightening my security for my Charge in case that is stolen/lost as well.

    Doing some googling I found this website, and I'm wondering if anyone is familiar with either it or any other trustworthy website that offers a similar solution.

    Thanks for your time in reading this.

    Lookout Mobile Security app on the market is free and comes with a lost/stolen phone feature where you can locate your device on their website.
