One of the worst feelings you can experience is wondering where your laptop is, especially when you're on the road. If your laptop doesn't have a built-in LTE, it may not be easy to find. Tile and Intel want to change that and are working together to bring location tracking to your future laptops.
You may already know Tile, the little Bluetooth trackers that you can attach to your keys, wallet and beloved coffee mug. In addition to battery life, their main drawback is a reliance on Bluetooth. If you are out of reach, you should hope someone else with a tile approaches your lost object.
Now the company plans to partner with Intel to integrate tracking technology into laptops. The details on what that means are scarce at the moment, but the suggestion is that tracking should work even if your computer is sleeping.
However, you can already find Tile technology on some laptops, HP & # 39; s Elite Dragonfly includes Tile and is already on the market today. Tile says you can see laptops with location capabilities later this year, although the evidence in the pudding will lie.
