If you’ve misplaced your iPad, all is not lost! Gather yourself; turn on that dusty PC and sign in to your MobileMe account.
Why? Because in addition to automatically syncing your e-mail, contacts and calendars, MobileMe has a Find My iPad feature that can lead you right to that wayward device.
For starters, navigate that browser to me.com and sign in with your Apple ID. There you can view a map that will show the approximate whereabouts of the missing iPad . If the device is close enough, activate the sound function to help find it. If that doesn’t work a display message on the Home screen can alert anyone who comes across the device to locate you- even if the screen is on lock.
However, The Find My iPad feature works only when the device is connected to the Internet. So it increases the probability of being discovered if both Wi-Fi and 3G are available, but it can also find your Wi-Fi-only iPad when it’s connected to a wireless network.
So before you take that iPad 64GB Wi-Fi + 3G to the coffee shop, make sure you've signed up with the free MobileMe option from Apple. And don't forget to leave a message such as: "I've left my iPad alone again! Please give me a call at 555-5555. I'll buy you a cup of coffee."
