Oh, yes. This is so very geeky, but also good for a laugh or two. Download this little piece of software to give your computer the same level of remote-controlled safety your car probably enjoys. Using the remote that came with your Mac (Windows, Linux and Amiga users need not apply), you can arm and disarm your computer's new security system, complete with the telltale WHOOP WHOOP and door lock sounds. Anyone who dares to mess with your locked-down computer will meet with the shrill sounds of the stereotypical car alarm. Your cubicle neighbors are gonna love this! The software is available from Toyota and looks to be part of its iQ marketing campaign in Belgium. Don't worry, though, the easy-to-follow software setup is in English.

Thanks for the tip, Bob!
