The Lost &… Never Lost

Tile is a little fob that communicates its location with an iPhone to help you remember where you put your stuff.

Just attach it to your keys or bag or something and it remembers where you put it last. If you’re within 100 feet or so, you can narrow it down to that pile of clothes and pull your wallet out from underneath.

I’m thinking I’d get one and just leave it in my car and it would always remember where I park. (Yes, that’s a different spot every day.)

My two concerns are:

  • What when/if their cloud system gets hacked and
  • It only lasts a year. Yes they recycle, but yes the “introductory” price is $18. I don’t want to get locked into an annual expense just because I can’t keep track of my stuff correctly.
