According to the CEO of Found in Town, Chicagoans leave an average of 120,000 cell phones in taxi cabs each year. Get it together, Chi! Found in Town is a just-launched website for the recovery of lost items (not just cellies!) in Chicago. This free service lets you register, sends you identifying labels for your stuff (with a unique-to-you pin number), and then connects you with your lost stuff after it has gone m.i.a..! We think this is a genius solution to the inevitabilities of taxi cab culture, and, with the help of a few good Samaritans, it might erase the woes of Chicago's most forgetful. Sign up (for free), then start protecting, like, everything you own.
