Rampell Software LLC, makers of Mac productivity tools, has released a ghost for the platform. More precisely it’s a Spector, a utility that “secretly” records everything that happens on your computer.
It records every Web site visited, every chat conversation, every program, and more, according to MacTech magazine. Spector works by periodically taking “snapshots” of your screen. An authorized user can invoke Spector by means of a hotkey and play back everything that happened on the computer. It also records every keystroke typed and features password protection.
The snooping tool is targeted to anybody who wants to monitor activity on their computer. If you want to see everything that happens on your Mac when you’re not around, this US$69.95 tool may be for you.
Spector requires Mac OS 8.0 or later (but isn’t Carbonized for Mac OS X), 16M of RAM (32MB or higher for best performance), and about 10MB of hard disk space for a typical day’s recording of data.
