    No, the rumor is that future laptops and other Apple accessories will include GPS to help you track them. Leopard will have the software to do this built in.

    Very very interesting rumour. This would be a great insurance feature.

    As well as last time i checked a GPS transmittor needs to have clear view of the sky and be calbirated, so this would be a big inconvience and easyily bypassed (put it in a box and solved)
