Say you left a set of keys somewhere and have a hard time mentally retracing your steps. Since it’s not an iPhone or a wallet and of little use to a stranger in most cases, chances are you‘ll get the keys back sooner than later. Even so, sooner is the key.
I know one pixilated person – well, we all know several, but the one in question bears a striking resemblance to your humble typist -- who the other day left his keys in the post office. There are sundry keys on the chain, but, as may be true with you, this person is darned if he can recall what any of the unused keys once unlocked, save the one assigned to his post office box that he uses routinely. It’s enough to make a sane man go postal.

Silicon Valley's digital genies ingeniously have created apps like Find My iPhone that let owners of that Apple product or an iPad locate a lost device and even shut it down and erase it, rendering it of little use to a dishonest person who purloins it. My "friend" has first-hand experience with this app, for the worst reasons: he, also rather ingeniously, placed his iPad on a payphone while parking at a street meter in White Plains, then decided to go to a parking lot, leaving behind the iPad to fend for itself, or get picked up by a passerby, which it promptly did. He failed to get it back because the device was off and the app only locates devices that are on. His collegiate daughter, however, was able to locate her iPhone -- at a neighboring campus -- with the assistance of Find My iPhone... and campus security.
