Yes, I am one of those people who misplaces my keys often. Half the time they are actually in my purse actually and I just miss seeing them because my bag is kind of large and has a lot of stuff in it all the time (Grandma would be so proud). The rest of the time I’ve put them down somewhere when I came home and I just cannot remember where.
Years and years ago I remember getting my Great Aunt June a keychain that would beep when you whistled. She had the same problem losing her keys too. She loved the gift but if the keys where buried somewhere a bit the whistle finder did not really help. Advance to present day and there is something better. At a recent Verizon #VZWBuzz Influencer Summit, Microsoft gave me a Nokia Treasure Tag (by the way I love the name) to try out and it solves my lost key problems!
The Treasure Tag pairs with my Nokia Lumia Icon smartphone using NFC (near field communication). You pair the two up by just tapping them together, very easy. Then I put the Treasure Tag on my key ring. The app on my phone lets you set up multiple Tags even and name them and have different icons. You can use it on anything you like, my keys were just the obvious choice for me for my first one. If I change my mind I can just move the Tag to whatever I want.
Now when I can’t find my keys I just tap the Treasure Tag icon on my phone and it makes the fob on my keys beep so I can find them! Sweet!
If you had a Nokia Treasure Tag would you use it on your keys or something else?[signoff]
