Simple, yet clever at the same time. The folks at StuffBak are on to something cool with this lost-and-found service they offer. How it works is that you place StuffBak labels on your mobile phone, PDA, etc. After a Web based registration process, your items are “protected” if lost.
To me this seems like it might have a few flaws though. Like, if the item is stolen, then it is unlikely that you are going to get anything back. However, if the locating person is honest, I suppose it is possible that they might take the time to call the number on the label.
Once someone finds the lost item, they can call the phone number on the label and receive an award. The owner is then notified and the item is shipped to him or her.10News reporter Leonard Villarreal tested StuffBak labels with an array of electronic items.Villarreal “loses” a cell phone, a pair of sunglasses and a Palm Pilot in Old Town, San Diego. He “misplaces” a digital camera and a cell phone at the beach and he “loses” a laptop computer at a library.
