iPhone Find Me Feature

Looks like the new iPhone may have implemented a version of my Find Me! feature:

If you have a MobileMe account ($100 a year), you can also make your iPhone beep for two minutes — and display a plaintive message on the screen — when
you’ve misplaced it. How many times have you wished your cellphone had that
feature?

Pretty close to my version of the feature. But needs to be a stand-alone $5 app (max).

  1. It's a pretty cool feature.

    On top of it, you can trigger the GPS on it to display on a map where it's currently located. Furthermore, you can have all your data wiped on it so if it's found it won't have your personal data. (If found, you can restore that data simply by replugging the phone into your computer.)
