    It's too big to attach to a wallet... for anything else the price tag doesnt justify it.

    A nice item for the absent minded or kids but to anyone who has some semblance of order in their lives, superfluous, well to me at least.

    I could see this being good for people who may might forget things but it could also be used on days for things where you have to present something for your office. Some people spend time focusing their efforts on preparing for something like a presentation that they may forget a big part which is where I could see some use for this to those people.

    Otherwise, its just another random gadget.
     
  6. I can see a problem in a second, I have a Tag to my keys and on my backpack. I come home, leave my keys at the front door on a small hook and leave my backpack there also, dont need it and want to make sure I will pick it up the next morning. Good so far. Then I go outside in my back yard to have a beer (its summer and the sun is shinning) bam my phone start buzzing because I am too far from my keys and backpack, so I turn off the tag, oups out of beer, so I want to go buy more, get to my car and realize my keys are inside (tag was off). This is just one example.
     
  7. Just give me a cheap paging device for my lost items like wallet, phones, remotes. A small wireless device no bigger than a quarter with a micro speaker to beep. Less than 10 bucks. Thats all we need!

    I believe this works as a notification system for when two devices become separated, not as a GPS locator solution.
     
  10. Okay I see It works with Here maps. I guess you would have to be one to take the tool/s to their house and then forget
