Google App. For Tracking Stolen/Lost Laptop ?

Hello,

I might be wrong about this, but I seem to remember that Google offered a free application whereby Laptop users could, somehow, track their their laptop if stolen or just lost. Used cel tower triangulation, etc., I believe.

Looked, but can't seem to find any link to it.

Is there a Google App. for this ?
Where ?

Thanks,
Bob

Am I correct in saying Dells come with something similar built in?
