I thought that a Jewish state would be free of the evils afflicting other societies: theft, murder, prostitution … But now we have them all. And that's a thing that cuts to the heart….--GOLDA MEIR
YOUR DATA MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR COMPUTER, BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN AFFORD TO LOSE YOUR COMPUTER EITHER. No matter how inexpensive computers may get, nobody wants to buy a second computer if they can keep their first one. To keep your computer from disappearing, spend a little extra time and money so that your computer doesn't wind up slipping out of your hands and into the hands of a thief.
Besides using a little common sense, such as never leaving your laptop computer unattended, you can take some extra precautions, such as locks or alarms. If someone does happen to get your computer, you may be able to find it again with a tracking device. To make a thief's life even more miserable, you may also want to invest in a biometric device that only allows you, or a select group of people you choose, to use your computer.
