"Six-hundred thousand laptops are disappearing every single year," Absolute Software Vice President Mark Grace said during this CES interview.

The company is the publisher of LoJack for Laptops, a software product that tracks lost and stolen laptops. The company, according to Grace, has extensive relationships with law enforcement around the world. The product tracks the laptops through the IP address "behind the scenes," according to Grace. "Once that system calls into our servers we get three out of four back...we help get the subpoena and get the warrant and help law enforcement to go knock on the door to find out who's using it."
