An interesting example of a social site whose community is focused on keeping track of their real-world stuff. This strikes me as an interesting business and partner opportunity for those companies that provide services around those things being tracked.
We all have things—consumer electronics, valuable furniture, collections, or collectibles. Whether you have a household of stuff, a collection of great art, wines, comic books, or sports memorabilia—you name it, MyThings provides a safe, easy-to-use place for you to catalog it and track it online.
Why catalog your things online? For many reasons! Perhaps you want one safe place to house all those details—you know, the random receipts and warranties you’ve stuffed in a shoebox or in that famous junk drawer. Or maybe you want to better manage your things—like when you need to upgrade or replace certain items, see what’s missing in your favorite collection, or time which wines to drink within the year. Or perhaps you want to know how much your cache of valuables is really worth. It can be any of these things but the point is with MyThings, you can have peace of mind because it is safe and secure and can be accessed anytime, from anywhere.
That’s what MyThings is, an online service that helps keep track of belongings—when and where they were bought, for how much, the services provided with them, and their value. We offer useful services and deals, such as valuations, accessories, warranties, lost and found, and product updates and information.
