    Find My Tablet Feature

    I know my wife's win phone 8 has the feature where you can enable MS to track your phone and you can do a remote wipe, change your passcode, things like that. Pretty cool. It would be nice on the surface in case you lose it, does the Surface have this feature?

    I checked my Windows Live account, and I don't see an option for the Surface. My opinion is due to the lack of Mobile connection, where you actually register with a mobile number. If the Surface was stolen and never connects to WiFi, there's no way to wipe it.

    Can't track it without GPS but it seems to me MS could enable a remote wipe once it connects to the internet.

    For Android there was a really cool app called GotYa! that took a picture with the front facing camera every time the screen was turned on. Then it would email the picture and a gps location (optional) to an email address of your choice. I had this feature on my Asus Transformer and loved it; though, luckily I never needed to use it.
