Lock and unlock a Mac using Bluetooth detection
Authored by: mech14 on Dec 31, '09 08:01:43PM

Thanks for the feedback, makemineamac. The reason I went searching for alternatives is because I had this implementation in Ubuntu for free, and it had a lot of options for an open-source project (blueproximity). Having said that, Airlock is cheap, but reading multiple reviews I've noticed Airlock conflicts a lot with other bluetooth devices (especially the new mouse and keyboard).

Airlock's creator had to return a lot of people's money due to these issues. Anyway, that's besides the point. I like open source and welcomed the chance to learn more about my hackint0sh than i would with a seamless program like Airlock. This IS a macosxHINTS site after all, so that was what i am sharing: a hint. Airlock should be listed on 'iusethis.com' as it's not really a hint :)

Happy new year's everyone.
