I’m very unhappy with Lenovo because they exploited us, then dropped us, and now the lie to us (us = Linux users). So Lenovo can kiss my ass. But this is cool:
Lenovo is using text messaging to add an additional layer of security to the company’s line of ThinkPad notebooks. Starting in 2009, Lenovo ThinkPad notebook users can use an SMS text message to shut down a laptop that has been stolen or has been lost. This new feature, called Lenovo Constant Secure Remote Disable, was developed in conjunction with Phoenix Technologies to work with the ThinkPad’s BIOS.
