If you've recently bought a new Mac laptop, the last thing you want is for it to get stolen. Apple doesn't really offer any monitoring program to protect your MacBook, so iAlertU comes as a blessing.
This open source program makes smart use of both motion sensor and iSight to protect your MacBook. Once activated, it will trigger an alarm as soon as your MacBook is moved or your keyboard/trackpad is touched. It can also automatically take a snapshot of the robber with the iSight camera and send it automatically by email. iAlertU is very easy to use and can be activated just by using the Apple Remote. You can access all it's settings directly from the menu bar and choose what sort of alarm to trigger. Obviously you'll have to choose well when to activate it, as you don't want the alarm to go off every time someone gets close to your Mac.
- New alarm sounds have been contributed and the existing sound has been cleaned up.
