OS X Lion Developer Preview 4 adds ‘Find My Mac’ feature

“Alongside yesterday’s announcements related to OS X Lion, Apple pushed out a fourth developer preview version of the next-generation operation system set to make its public launch next month,” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors.

“Among the new features in this build of Lion is ‘Find My Mac,’ a feature similar to the one already in use for iOS devices,” Slivka reports. “One user has provided screenshots of the system in action, showing first of all how Find My Mac can be enabled in System Preferences, revealing that feature allows users to lock the screen of a lost machine while allowing guest access only to Safari in order to help facilitate recovery of the machine.”

Slivka reports, “The user also reveals how his MacBook Air could be located using the Find My iPhone app on his iPhone.”
