Full story below:

I left my laptop behind in my classroom after an exam, and didn’t notice until I got home. By the time I was able to go back and check, it was gone. I activated Prey, which notified me when my laptop had internet connection. Between the location given and the information and screenshots and photos from Prey, I was able to look up a name in the white pages to get an exact address. When I talked to police officers, they were very interested in how I was able to get this information, and several said they would be downloading this software when they got home!
