Prey Project

Today’s website is the prey project.Prey helps you to keep track of your laptop,phone and tablet whenever lost.Basically you install a program in your PC or phone, which waits for you to tell the control panel its missing which will signal to the laptop or other device to start giving reports.The signal can be sent either from the Internet or through an text message.If enabled, Prey will attempt to hook onto to the nearest open WiFi hot spot when no Internet connection is found.When disabled no data will be collected.With prey you can track the laptop’s position on a map,use the webcam to take a picture of the  thief,capture a screenshot,hide data,remove stored passwords,scan hardware ,sound an alarm,show a message to the thief letting him know he’s being chased and lock down the computer.All this info will be sent to you as a report  to either your control panel or mailbox depending on the reporting method you choose.The software does not depend on much and does not affect the computer in-till activated by you.Also the software auto-updates itself so you don’t have to manually install it each time.Any of this info can be used with the police to get your device back to you.

It is all free for 3 devices with 10 report spaces.But if you want more spaces and more devices you may want to buy a pro plan with prices that range from $5(approx £3.30) for 3 plus the extra benefits to $399(Approx £260.80) for up to 500 devices plus benefits.For more details see below.

Google alerts

Today’s website is more another service from Google which you may not have heard of.It allows you get a email every time your search query comes up online.This is useful because it can help you research data ,follow someones online history and track your company online.

My rating is 5 out of 5 because the uses are endless and it does not flood your emails with information(unless you want it to).

Uniflip


Aren’t you tired of boring pdf files you need to get information from because they are almost impossible to get anything from.

Uniflip allows you to load a pdf file and turn it into an amazing multimedia experience.You can then easily post it onto popular forms of social networking and websites or you can download it again.Its easy to use and for its usefulness the price is very reasonable.

My rating is 4 out of 5 because even though the price is reasonable for the service it is still expensive.
