gps satellites tracking items

Should Manufacturers equip high value electronic items with built-in GPS trackers?

There was a report from a Spanish language website, La Union, states that 19 year old man allegedly broke into a home through an open window and stole a personal laptop computer that was left on the kitchen counter. The computer was eventually tracked down using the built-in GPS tracker and the suspect was taken in for possession of stolen merchandise.

As technology keeps advancing, it will only be a mater of time where most electronic products, will come out with some kind of anti-theft devices. There are small radio frequency readers that can be installed into large electronics currently in the market, but not a true satellite GPS tracker.
