    Default Tile - I looked through the forum and I can't believe this hasn't been mentioned

    This is so COOL. I'm ordering three tomorrow. Am I the last person to know about this?

    Yeah, they've been advertised on the blog side for a while. Anyway, let us know what you think of them after you've used them.

    Oh yeah I will! Unfortunately they won't ship until what....Fall or something???? REALLY like the fact that tiles can talk to other tiles in case something is stolen to show where the stolen item is.

    Or in my case to show where one of my wee thieving ferrets has hidden my wallet.

    I also backed them a while back.. Didn't turn out how I originally pictured it, nevertheless, will be getting a few.

    I'm ordering them today. Can't wait. I honestly have a problem with ferrets stealing my keys and my wallet so I actually do need this.

    Would be kinda cool to just hide a couple of them in a car in case it was stolen.

    I need one on my cat's collar. She can find more places to hide than I thought possible.

    I want to order one, but they seem heavily reliant on consumer activity to make them accurate. What happens when the tile protected item is taken into the boonies and there's not another tile owner around for large spans of distance? They haven't exactly been detailed in how accurate it will be on it's own as a singular device in terms of ease of location (or speed).

    I'm sure this has come to mind at least once or twice during development. I'd wait a bit longer to read some in-depth reviews and tests on them before you buy one.

    Ya think? I figured they just spent tons of money on developing the product without ever discussing it.

    Sarcasm aside...this was kind of the point of my post...I want to order one, but I want to see more details about how the product works individually.

    Then consider the second post a beacon of clarity for yourself.

    Oh no, the sarcasm was definitely directed at your retort...I meant the second part, where I spelled out my initial comment.

    I ordered one back in June but haven't received it yet. Has anyone actually received their tile? If so, I'm really curious to hear how it works.

    Thank you very much for your inquiry.

    I've taken a look into this and our records indicate that you placed your Tile pre-order on 06/02/2014 and Tile began accepting pre-orders in June 2013. Pre-orders placed between September 23, 2013 and June 3, 2014 are estimated to ship in September this year.

    There are some earlier orders to be fulfilled and we have thus published a shipping schedule that provides a time frame for when your Tile order will ship based on the date the order was placed. We are actively working to improve the speed at which we produce Tiles and will update this schedule regularly based on actual shipments and production capacity.

    How are you liking these? I was looking for something to track my keys. I just bought a car yesterday, and they tried to sell me a key replacement service for $500. I thought, hey, why not just get a tracker and find them myself for a lot less.

    $500 for key replacement? I can get about 10 sets for $25. Surely there was more to it.
