App makes iPhone hide-and-seek a lot easier

WASHINGTON -- A mobile application makes it much easier for forgetful Apple customers to find their expensive devices.

The MobileMe app allows iPhone, iPad and iPod users access to a full map with the exact location of their device. The information is available from any computer, and can make tracking down lost or stolen equipment a lot easier.

In case the user can't retreive the device immediately, the app also can remotely scrub devices of any personal information.

Apple offers the service with a free 60-day trial, and then for $99 per year afterward. Check out their website for more information.
