    Default iAlertU - The Mac Car Alarm
    iAlertU is basically a car alarm for your Apple Mac. iAlertU uses the built in sudden motion sensor to detect movement of your MacBook and triggers an audible and visual alarm. The alarm can also be triggered in a variety of other customizable ways. It even has been made to continue sounding even after the MacBook screen has been closed!
    iAlertU can be activated and deactivated using the remote included with every MacBook computer. Adjustable settings let you decide which type of alarm triggers you would like to use, the duration of the alarm, and motion sensor sensitivity.

    iAlertU also features functionality which utilizes the built in iSight camera to photograph the thief and then email the photo to a user specified email address.

    Check out the demo here: [ame=""]iAlertU[/ame]

    Captured photo can now be emailed automatically to a user specified address

    System requirements

    Apple MacBook or MacBook Pro
    OS X 10.4 or higher
    Quicktime 7.1.3 or higher
    Note iAlertU may work on other Apple Macs but this has not been tested.

    Basic operation

    Click and hold the "menu" button on the Apple remote or select "Arm" from the pull down menu bar on your status bar to arm iAlertU.
    Click and hold the "menu" button on the Apple remote or enter your password with the keyboard to disarm iAlertU. You must have set your password in the preference panel in order to arm iAlertU from the status bar menu.
    Check the ReadMe document included with the iAlertU application for further information.

    I love this app, I don't really use it though, maybe every once in a while for fun.

    Still pretty cool though.
    A Thanks is always nice =]

    is it possible to use the iPhone as the remote since the apple remote does not come with the laptop anymore?
