What do you think about this little device? It's kinda neat, but also kinda scary as everyone becomes a potential NSA agent. Yeah--I'm exaggerating.

I see a great potential for some one to track their cheating spouse by slipping one in their pocket or some other out of way place

Yeah but you'd have to report them "lost" to track them, and then hope they're near people with the App. The Tile range is only 100 ft or so from your phone. Wouldn't it be a hoot if the person with the App was their "mistress" !! laugh

And the Bike thingie- if you were a thief- wouldn't you remove it ? DUH !! crazy
#2 - lasts only about 1 year then needs replacing !

NOT saying it's not worth having- but there are limitations. It's not a Dick Tracey wristwatch !!

At first I thought parents will want one to hide in their teenager's car. Just the same, thieves will find a way to exploit this too. But the range of the tile is only 50 - 150ft as Dave said. But I bet Tile 2.0 will have a much larger range. Yep, spy gear for the average nerd.

I contributed to http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/button-trackr-find-lost-items/x/236303 and am anxiously awaiting my "button trackr". I just like neat toys. If it works, fine. If not, I'll sue them;)

You can put the little devil into a kitchen cabinet. With the kitchen spammers on the loose, you can never be too careful.
