We need a programmer that can write an application for us (in Cocoa) that uses a user's location information and sends it to our servers. The purpose of this application is to update a user's current location every 15 minutes so if the device is ever stolen, the user can retrieve it.
What we need this application to do:
-Run as a background process (no dock icon)
-Login to a pre-made SQL database using a username/password
-App should save password securely for future use
-App should open when user starts up computer
-App should login to SQL automatically on launch (using saved username/password)
-Every 15 minutes, geo-location should be gathered and latitude/longitude coordinates sent to our SQL database
The app should be lightweight and should NEVER crash. If you are un-framiliar with the core-location protocols in OS X, here's a tutorial:

Core-location is only available in OS X 10.6 so no need to worry about compatibility with former versions of the operating system. Also, no need for a universal binary, we should be built on intel only.
