FINALLY!! Some of you may know some friends and I looked into creating something similar a few years ago and had too many other things going on. I'm absolutely thrilled that someone is doing something about it, and I hope it works well! :)
Locate anything you attach a Tile to using the Tile app. It's never been easier to find your keys.

So, this tile cost about $20+ after tax and will last for one year.  You can also buy additional ones and up to 10 per account.  This is pretty good business if you have to buy a few of them each year.  In no time, the phone company will embedded this technology into the phone which is the major "loser" other than car keys.  I do not see buying one though.  I have another idea that will be much better.  Talk to me.  

Bah

This is the most succinct way I've seen a conventional business model explained. Very slick.

Truly renewable resources and self-sustaining systems are few and far between. But what if you could have one in your garden?

Introduction
I was born in Cupertino and grew up in the Silicon Valley, but I've lived in Manhattan, Boston, and Houston at different times in my life.

I love being an entrepreneur because I get to work with really smart people to overcome incredible challenges while creating new ways to help people and change the world.

I am fascinated by the intersection between technology and human beings and how it helps improve our lives while shaping it at the same time.

I dropped out of Harvard to found my first failed start-up.
Bragging rights
I'm the luckiest man in the world because I scored the lottery with my wife, kids, and family.
