    I'm working on a site that helps find lost and stolen computers, but I'm at a loss for a domain name. Any ideas for an available domain name?

    Thanks for the help!

    Ideas...

    pcfinder.com?
    lostandfoundpc.com?
    lostpcs.com?

    These are just ideas, so I don't care if you don't like them or not.
    I can't think of anything... :(
    And I have never heard of people looking for stolen computers!
    I just never had. Never.

    Have you arlready made the site?
    Could I see? (IF YOU DID)

    Ah, so it's a software based solution. My first thought was actually something along the lines of Craig's List where people may post that they have found a laptop or something and others posting they are looking for their lost laptop. Though that type of site likely wouldn't get very far.

    For me I just include contact info on my devices for people to get in touch with me, which at least works for honest people that find it. Like my iPod has my name and web site engraved on it, so people could find me through that way. On my MacBook I included my email address on the login screen for people to see so they know how to contact me. Again, generally only helps if honest people find it, but it makes me feel a touch better.

    Does the software being developed have a name? Something that could contribute to the domain name possibilities?

    It's actually web-based so its platform/device independent. Plus no software that is visible to the user. Still working on a name. I have been working on the coding on a free host with a random name for now.

    Ideas:
    • LostTechTracking
    • LostTechTracker
    • TechRetreiver (could use a golden retriever as the logo)
    • LostAndFoundMobiles
    • ILostMyMobile (.com taken, but there's .net .org)
    • WhereDidMyDeviceGo
    • WheresMyTech (.com taken)
    • LostTechFinder

    PCJackerTracker.com or some form of it.

    Jack and track being the key words you can play with, ryhmes, easy to remember. Kinda like LoJack for cars.
