Have trouble keeping up with your belongings? Who doesn't right? UK'sown TenBu has a solution that's probably perfect for your dilemma, andlo and behold, it involves that short-range communication module that'sused far too infrequently on your current mobile. The simply titled nioBluetooth tag is hailed as a personal gadget guardian, and while it hasbeen available for a short while across the pond, it's just now landingin North America.

Essentially, nio creates a selectable security zone of just a few feet- up to 80 - with a Bluetooth tag and an innovative software link thatdownloads directly onto the user’s cell phone. If someone were to snagyour tagged gadget and then make a run for it, the security zone wouldbe breached and both the nio tag and the connected cell phone wouldemit a loud alarm and a flashing blue light. The details of how theprocess works is below, and the nio tag is available now for $69.95 (which includes lifetime service).

How nio works:

nio is specifically designed for ease of use. The nio software can control multiple nio tags simultaneously, and each tag can be given an identifying name and image on the cell phone. In extremely high-risk environments, users can activate a Motion Sensor to alert them if anyone moves their tagged item, even within the selected security zone.

A handy “locate” tone helps users find misplaced tagged items, and a calendar feature allows users to preset specific times for the tag to go active – ideal for the commute to work. Uniquely, nio comes equipped with a fully rechargeable battery that can keep nio on standby for several weeks.

A formidable first line of defense against the loss or theft of valuable portable items, nio is compatible with most smartphones.

Fancy Shmancy stuff.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
