Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

  1. Despite claims to have started shipping Tile’s, there is no evidence on any of the blogs that anyone has received a Tile. Surely Tile’s would have been sent out to Technical Reviewers/Publicists by now. Also, there is no App, so how can anyone use their Tile?
    Given the lousy information provided on the company website (the last post from the CEO was 3 months ago) – I would suggest investors request a refund asap. I think Tile stands for ‘There Is Little Evidence’ that this is anything other than a scam.

  2. This item is basically a scam — it will eventually ship but they are raising money for a product they know is completely worthless. It won’t help you find anything and the battery lasts only a year. It’s a scam.

  3. It is weird that before they are shipping the item out they have on the bottom of their website


    Reveal Labs, Inc. (the “Company”) will use reasonable commercial
    efforts to deliver the products as described. You understand that the
    products are under development, and numerous technical, financial, and
    practical obstacles may interfere with their delivery to you and with
    their functioning thereafter. THEREFORE, THE PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED “AS
    IS” AND THE COMPANY MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH

    WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A
    PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE COMPANY AND ITS PROVIDERS SHALL ALSO HAVE NO
    LIABILITY OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCTS.”

    They are already not prepared to back their product.. If I was a consumer buying this product this would be the larges red flag for me !!!!!!

    Tile is really overrated. While bluetooth has a theoretical range of 150 feet, other devices generally say it’s more like 10-20 feet. And the odds that another user will (1) have Tile app installed (2) on a GPS enabled phone (3) that keeps Tile app open at all times (which would drain your battery life and (4) is actually within distance of your lost item without physically seeing it are minute. So minute that the crowdsourced tracking feature is really a scam. Button TrackR has all of Tile’s features and is available now, but don’t buy either product for tracking potentially stolen items like a bike or laptop–it just won’t work for that.
