    Best way to find my tablet when setting it down in a room?

    Does anybody know of a good way to force my tablet to make noise using a computer or preferably my Android phone? I'm constantly setting the thing down in our tech room at work, and it blends in too well. If I set my phone down I could call it, but since it's a Wi-fi Xoom, there's really no way to get it to make noise to locate it. Email doesn't work, since the light just flashes on the tablet.

    I'm open to pretty much anything, I lose it too much. My phone is usually on the same wi-fi network as the tablet if that's anyhelp. I think the ultimate solution would to just setting it down in stupid places, but ehh, that's probably not going to happen.

    You can turn it into a phone with GrooveIP although I am not sure it will make a sound if the screen is off.

    Buy a pink Incipio case? What Ollie said should work.

    Seekdroid should make it make a sound as well. I wish I could try it out to confirm.

    I just tried, and while it seems like it'll help locate at home, my work blocks whatever port SeekDroid is using to communicate with the tablet. I have that issue a lot here with my Android devices.
