Apple devices can find your Tile!

Happened to see an ad on a website for Tile, an application from Apple that helps you find your tagged Tile items with your smartphone. Attach the Tile tag to the item that you want to know where it is and the tag gives a signal via Bluetooth to the smartphone.

Think this item would be a definite gift idea for the Apple device users you know. Just one question: if the Tile of one's person tether is in the vicinity of a second Tile app user, will the second user be able to "see" the Tile as well?

I forgot to mention that this application also works on smartphones with Android operating systems.

Still, it's wonderful to know that object finding gadgets have a purpose in the 21st century. Should software ever expand to Blackberry phones, I know a person who could use the Tile app for things frequently missplaced. If not the key ring, it's usually a clothing item being sought.
