Wednesday - 6/30/2010, 5:04pm EDT
- Intel is testing out a remote kill switch for laptops. The new anti-theft technology will give a remote command to a laptop to disable access to the computer's operating or encryption system. Intel says the technology is simple to use and will act as a deterrent to laptop theft. There will also be an auto disable feature, if the it does not call home regularly. Infosecuritymag.com reports, laptop thieves will be left with a high tech doorstop on their hands when the anti-theft technology is triggered.
