Lion Mac News

Find my Mac likely launching with Mac OS X Lion

When the first developer previews of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion were released, we reported on our findings of “Find my Mac” strings hidden deep in the operating system. At that time there was no concrete evidence that Apple is bringing their Find my iPhone service to the Mac, but now there are some strong indicators in the latest Lion update, that Find my Mac is launching with Lion. The first would be the Find my Mac icon, which is reminiscent of the Find my iPhone icon.
Additionally, there is something called Find my Mac messenger. We’re not too sure what this is, but we speculate that it might be a way for the Mac’s finder to instant message with the Mac’s owner. Apple is set to unveil a revamped MobileMe, so it’s possible that Apple will throw some instant messenger client for Find my Mac into the new web interface.
