Rail against Big Brother all you want. Keep your eye out for black helicopters overhead. Store bars of gold in your underground bunker as you await the FEMA occupation.
Me? I have a 2-year-old who likes to make off with phones.
Me? I’m an idiot who should know better than to leave my phone in silent mode.
Me? I’m thankful for Find My iPhone/iPad/iPenguin. I don’t care if Big Brother, Big Sister or my Great Uncle Dean knows where it is.
If you have an iDevice, you can set it up to be found if you lose it or it gets stolen.
You can, as I did yesterday after Sarah swore she didn’t know where it was, have it play a sound (even if it’s in silent mode) until you locate it.
You can also have it send a message to the phone that displays on the screen.
You can also lock it so a ne’er-do-well can’t do anything to or with it.
You can also wipe it remotely.
It’s magnificent. Next time we go visit my mom, and
my 7-year-old I help her set up her new iPad, we’re for sure showing her how to use this.
You know … in case dad tries to hide it from the black helicopters.
