According to a recent report by Macrumors, Apple has just released a Beta version of Find My Mac- the Mac equivalent of Find My iPhone, which will allow you to locate your Mac from any web browser or iOS device and play a sound or send a message to that Mac. You can also choose to remote lock or wipe the Mac. However, that will prevent you from locating that Mac a second time.
The report states that Apple is currently releasing the Beta version to OS X developers so that they can test out and try new things with the service.
When the Find My Mac service is finally released, it will be free for all OS X Lion users. You will also need an iCloud membership (which also is free).
According to sources, Find My Mac will be tested for a while – and will finally be released in the Fall. Hopefully, we will start getting more news and videos of Find My Mac soon, as developers test it out.
