A concept that makes it easier for a good samaritan to return a lost iPhone

iOS

Lost_Mode_iOS-mode

I’ve recently read the article on Medium.com regarding and discussing an idea on how Apple could help “good samaritans” whose, finding our lost iOS device – and particularly an iPhone, to contact the device’s owner with ease. Thing that now it’s not so easy to do if the phone is locked by a code, or anyway request the finder to dig into our address book, or contact list, or recent phone calls…

I’ve liked it so much that I’ve used the Apple contact form to fill-in a request citing this article directly.

Where is your Dock

OSX

Pin your OS X Dock to the bottom right

… wherever you like! Shawn Blanc blogged on his own preferred place over the desktop to place the Dock, bottom right.

Personally I’m not sold on this, since I use my 2010’s hi-res MacBook Pro only in two ways: stand alone or in clamshell mode with a Dell U2713HM display. And in both I prefer my Dock to be placed on the left of the screen, with the auto-hide option enabled. So – as ever – YMMV
