Find My iPhone works, and it is awesome!

MobileMe - Apple Store (U.S.)I, along with “two compadres, Ryan and Mark, are in Chicago (each of us for the first time) to attend Brickworld, the world’s largest Lego convention. Yes, we’re a bunch of dorks. Yes, you totally wish you were here too,” The Intermittent Kevin blogs.

“Last night, after seeing Second City improv, we ate at a pleasantly sketchy dive bar in uptown Chicago, where the food was mediocre and the characters were questionable. I definitely had my iPhone while at our table, and I definitely did NOT have it (whoops!) when we were 100 feet down the street,” The Intermittent Kevin blogs.

“I raced back into the bar, not even particularly concerned, but it was gone like baby. In less than five minutes, with very few people in the small place, my beloved JesusPhone had managed to vanish into a black hole. Our waitress was sympathetic, and I left a number, but I was immediately glum about my prospects of seeing it again,” The Intermittent Kevin blogs. “So I felt like about zero cents, but then we giddily realized that I had *just* activated the brand-new Find My iPhone service.”

The Intermittent Kevin reports that Apple’s “MobileMe service is worth the damn money. It’s been around for just over seven years and it FINALLY got a killer feature.”

  1. How does one track an iPhone using a MacBook Pro, if you don’t have a MobileMe account? This much ballyhooed ‘Find My iPhone’ works only on iOS devices: I have only one iOS device, the iPhone that can get lost. If my iPhone is lost, I have find it using my MacBook Pro, and I don’t have a MobileMe account. Am I just out of luck?
