My Tile's just arrived. They are a brand new technology that allows you to track anything like your keys, TV remote, and even sprayers!

First thing I'd want to know is can you thwart it by putting it in something like a refrigerator?
Or how far is the tracking capability?

As long as he's within ~150 feet of your bluetooth device...or some else's that's also running the app....

Sounds like it would be handy for things misplaced around the house or shop, less so in the larger world.

I really like those Steve. I could put one on my daily planner that I keep misplacing.

Putty knives and fan decks should come standard with the tiles.

There are some limitations and creepy privacy issues with Tile, though. This guy lays them out pretty well http://www.vice.com/en_uk/read/shoul...cation-tracker
