VANCOUVER – MobilityWire® – March. 20, 2013
Linquet, the Internet of Things company with the mission of linking everything to make everyday items “smart” and prevent them from being forgotten, lost, or stolen, today published an Infographic showing what huge losers we all are. It’s true. Among other stats, The Big World of Lost Things Infographic shows the average person loses 9 items per day, a total of 200,000 in their lifetime. What’s the number one item we lose? Cell phones top the charts, and the average lost phone costs the loser $900, with the total value of lost or stolen phones and their data costing Americans $30 billion.
