London, Mar 3: Now a laptop will stop thief! Scientists have developed a laptop which will shout 'stop thief!' when stolen. Front Door Software Corporation has designed a software programme called 'Retriever', which can make the laptop speak when it has been reported missing.
The software which cost about 21 pounds is the first of its kind that allows owners to activate recorded messages. The owners should tick a box indicating that their computer has gone, when it is started up a big red and yellow banner pops up, saying 'This laptop is lost or stolen'. The company sources said that the default message through the computer's speakers is: "Help this laptop is reported lost or stolen. If you are not my owner, please report me now."
