I tried this on both my MBP and Mac Mini...doesn't seem to work when I come back into range. Never unlocks. I'm sure glad I enabled the 'manual override' function or I'd have been locked out! Great idea...maybe needs some bugs worked out!

I'm going to check this out, but I can see all kinds of pitfalls with the concept. I dock my iPhone within a few feet of the computer, so unless I don't keep the iPhone docked, then the computer is always unlocked when the iPhone is charging or syncing? I have to take my phone with me at the office to go down the hall to the toilet to lock the computer, or can you force a screen lock even when the phone is in range? I guess testing will answer those kind of questions. At any rate, a really cool concept.

Yeah, yeah, I'll google it, but a link in the article to where to download it from would have been handy...

Agreed! It seems strange that they advertise software and don't tell you where to get it. Now i have to go all the way up to the google search bar and type...

um...if you click "Read More" at the bottom of the article it will take you exactly where you can download and purchase the software. So I don't know what your talking about??? Maybe try reading the full article before you start posting about it.
