Hot: HP’s 16GB TouchPad on sale for $99

HP just announced days ago its intention to discontinue production of webOS devices and retailers are already slashing prices.

The HP TouchPad has been cut to $99 and $149 for the 16GB and 32GB editions respectively. Many people have noticed that a white 64GB version has surfaced on HP’s website for $600 but I suspected that price won’t last long.

If you have been waiting to get a tablet, now is the time to buy.

Find Your Lost Phone for Free

We’ve all had those times of forgetfulness hit us at the worst possible moment like leaving your iPhone 4 prototype in a bar but the free apps below can help you recover it quickly.

Find My iPhone Apple (iTunes) has been available since June 2009 as a part of Apple’s full featured $99 MobileMe service plan. However, an update released today allows anyone with an iPhone 4, an iPad, or the fourth-gen iPod touch running iOS 4.2.1 to access the feature for free without a MobileMe account. As with the paid feature, you’ll be able to locate your device on a map, lock it, display a message, play a sound, or remotely wipe your data from any browser or the updated iOS app, which went live earlier today along with iOS 4.2.1 itself. Thanks Apple for giving me another reason to upgrade to the iPhone 5 next year.

Where’s My Droid Android is only one of many location apps available but it is certainly the best I have seen for the price. Not only does this app contain all the features of Find My iPhone but you can also send commands that will turn off silent mode and turn up the volume or activate the GPS if it was turned off. Very cool.

Find a Lost Phone Windows Phone 7 has the feature to find your phone built-in so no install is necessary, just login to your Windows live account to activate it. What makes it unique is that you can set it to periodically save your location so if your phone gets purposely shut off or the battery dies, its last known location will be saved.
