Yaaay! That guy in the windowless van found my keys! I'm just going to meet him under the highway overpass.

Ah, gotcha. I just read the whole thing. So random strangers can't just get access to your tiles.

It DOES mean the NSA can track all your shit, but really I don't know how much more invasive that is than tracking your phone's location.

With the small size and adhesiveness, you could also easily track others, or the belonging of others.

That's a whole realm of potential criminal benefits. Once the range expands it's going to get even better/easier.

Bingo! That's exactly where my mind went. "Holy Heck, they're selling national tracking devices!!!"
