Web Secret #278: Tile
But in my personal life, I am surrounded by people who misplace their stuff, (and other critically important items like house keys and car keys.) When these unnamed people go crazy looking for these lost possessions, they stress me out.
Plus I am tired of paying the deductible to my insurance company to replace lost/stolen iPhones. And get this - some of my teenagers (you know who you are) - are no longer insurable because there has been one too many incidents...
So imagine my excitement when I read about a small startup called Tile that raised a record-breaking $2.68 million for its small, Bluetooth-connected devices you can affix to anything you don't want to lose, such as your keys, laptop, or luggage. Here, let them show you their amazing product:
Tile will start shipping this coming winter, but you can preorder Tiles via Amazon.com at a cost of $18.95 per individual Tile. Once the company starts to ship, the Tiles will retail for $25.00.
It's the perfect Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa/birthday gift for your errant children.
