I have a used Motherboard installed in my laptop. It ran fine and in fact was quite a bit faster than my other computer with a faster processor after I installed a 7200rpm HD.

then one day I decided I needed to set a password on the machine and I couldn't. Come to find Toshiba had a recall on the machine's BIOS and would fix it for free. When I got it back it is slower than it was when I first bought it and the lojack software is activated.
Absolute has been great trying to turn it off but they can't find my machine online and Toshiba is now refusing to accept responsibility for their actions even though I forwarded the Absolute Software emails in which their man told me they get hundreds of cases like mine where BIOS work has turned it on in machines that the owners had not paid for it to be activated. They're happy to fix it if I pay!

I'm not sure how this realates here but I don't like having to use this thing with that program running. I don't have a cam, I wouldn't if given a choice but you have to have one if you buy an up to date laptop now.

Anyway I've written The guy I was dealing with at absolute and he's forwarded it to managment and sent me their emial. He isn't permitted to comment.

Here is the website for the mentioned software. It is meant for legitimate managment of networks.

Reality Check: 56,000 photos randomly snapped with many in their homes and we know some showed the teen's beds, but not one "inappropriate" image was produced. Check your basic statistics on teen behavior and tell me this would be an expected result.

Next bombshell: 56,000 photos, none of them "inappropriate"

You can't tell me the district "independent investigator" is credible.

Hmm..lets see being 31, I am "inappropriate" atleast once a day, the average teen is probably atleast 3 times that. So I highly doubt that one of those pictures wasn't inappropriate.

Frankly all the pictures are in my opinion inappropriate, if the school thinks the computers are stolen it doesn't need to take screen shots and webcam pics every 15 minutes. If it is that big of a problem install GPS devices in the computers and that will tell you exactly where it is. Plus in the case of the person who didn't pay his $55 insurance fee, you know who didn't pay the insurance fee you know the kid has it.

It was best said by members of the school district IT department in an email "Its like a LMSD soap opera". LMSD stands for Lower Marion School District which is the district where this occured.

Oh and by the way this isn't the first time that the Lower Marion School District made a bone headed decision. They based their district boundaries on race.

LMSD redistricting consultant says race was a consideration

This pretty messed up. Total invasion of privacy. Who could come up with an idea like this?

One has to say the District was at a minimum criminally reckless as to producing child porn. That there were no inappropriate photos produced out of 56,000 images is just bull. For one thing, Blake was shown in his bed sleeping at 5pm. Pictures taken every 15 minutes. Any guesses what a teenage boy was doing at 4:45 that would make him sleepy at 5pm? Of course, the LMSD is very forthcoming and will be completely transparent.

56,000 images... it just blows my mind that the indepenent investigator would "believe" for 1 second that there where NO indecent pictures taken - just stop and think about the "facts" that we do know so far... these computers where set to take a picture every 15 minutes once the software was turned on - we know that as fact - now... put yourself as a teen into that pic of the sleeping boy - at some point in time you are going to wake up - you are alone in your room - door closed - are you at no time in that 15 minutes between photos going to be in any form of undress or possibly even be laying on your bed masturbating the morning wood that most young teens wake up with... - it really does'nt take a rocket scientist to figure out that there are pictures missing...

Yeah, a lot of you have the same reaction that I do. I say you should let them know, in a polite manner is the most effective, that their story does not add up. Following is an email address for more information on the laptop issue. I would suggest pointing out, as I have, that this is not believable.

The IT employee who wouldn't let her computer be searched and pleaded the 5th Admendment to avoid incriminating herself by answering questions now says that the boy didn't have an expectation of privacy because he wasn't supposed to take the laptop home.

It looks to me that this women likes spying on high school students.
