HTC is trying to trademark the name ‘Fetch’ for a new piece of gadgetry that’d track down lost tech and locate people.
Now, we know the Taiwanese firm isn’t enjoying such a good time financially these days, but we wouldn’t have anticipated it diversifying into spy gear.
In its filing to the US Patent & Trademark office, the mobile manufacturer called it a “Portable multifunction electronic tracking device for assistance in locating mobile phones, smartphones…tablets…PCs.”
Sounds like a physical iteration of Apple’s Find My iPhone tool right? However Fetch will also “assist users in tracking people.” Jeez, haven’t we had enough surveillance worries for one week?
