Did you know that a laptop is stolen every 55 seconds in the United States?

I joined those ranks two weeks ago. While out on the road I made a stopover in Center City Philadelphia. Not thinking and in a rush to get to my destination, I left my laptop bag on the front passenger seat. I returned to my car to find the drivers-side window broken and the bag gone.

How could this be? In a downtown area of all places! Worse yet, that laptop's my livelihood! Isn't yours?

Yes, this was my own fault. Since then, I have done much thinking about what I could have done better to protect myself, and other steps I could have taken to prevent this unfortunate event from being such the inconvenience it was.

I've decided to share my research here to help prevent the same thing from happening to you, or if it has and that's why you're here, how to recover.

Detailed information about that HOW here:
