I'm wondering if anyone has any theories why Mobile Me's "find my iPhone" is so slow? I've googled around and I cant find any reasons why.
Find My iPhone sends a "push" signal to the iphone, which should only take a few seconds, the iphone then gets it's GPS coordinates (only a few seconds), then sends the results to the Mobile Me service (should only take a few seconds) and MobileMe "finds your iPhone" on on a map.. It's pretty nifty but the whole thing should only take 5-10 seconds, instead, from the time you hit "find my iphone" until the time it "refines" the location can be 3-5 minutes.
Why, god WHY???
