David Pogue gets his iPhone back

Hi All, This article was brought to my attention by fellow MacValleyite Arnold Woodworth. If you see an article you think the rest of us would enjoy, please bring it to my attention and I’ll post it right away!

New York Times technology columnist David Pogue lost his iPhone on an Amtrak train earlier this week but recovered it yesterday after police found it in the backyard of a house in suburban Maryland. Pogue used Find My iPhone, an application that uses GPS signaling to allow users to view the location of their iPhone from a computer or other device, to pinpoint the location of his phone.

Find My iPhone …. won’t work if the phone is turned off or the battery is dead, but it will tell you where your phone is if it’s powered on. It will also let you cause the phone to emit a loud noise for a couple of minutes, to help you find the phone if you are in earshot but not sure exactly where it is. Finally, an app like this can let you erase all of the phone’s data remotely, in case you resign yourself to the likelihood that the phone is gone forever and want to protect your private data. article on what to do if your iPhone goes missing.
