Man Uses his iPod touch and MobileMe to Find Lost iPad
It's a bit of a nightmare scenario for the iPad owner. You're disembarking from an airplane with your wife and baby, accidentally leaving your iPad on the plane in all the kerfuffle, and you don't realise that it's gone until it's way too late and the plane has disappeared, taking your iPad with it. In a story on CNET's Apple blog today, Curtis Cogdill explains how this very thing happened to him on a flight from Sacramento, Calif., to Portland, Ore., and how he then managed to trace the iPad using the Find My iPhone MobileMe app on his iPod touch. It turned out that the iPad had taken a plane ride to Orlando, Fla., and Cogdill was actually able to view his iPad's position on a plane on the tarmac at the airport in Orlando, and then see as the iPad left the plane and stopped at a nearby house! Police and a Southwest official then went and retrieved the Cogdill's iPad from an airline employee, so all's well that end's well!
