I’ve got the software and web site almost ready. I thought
I would run the idea by the SDMB before we opened for business.
Keyster (Our slogan: Save your keister with key-ster!)
Sometimes you lock your keys in your car, or you are right near a friends car who you KNOW wouldn’t mind if you borrow their car, except you don’t have their key. KEYSTER to the rescue! Just use our Keyster browser: Enter the licence late number of the car with your celluar phone’s keypad. Through the miracle of Keyster technology, a key will be teleported to your location. Open the car up, and off you go!
Keyster users decide what keys to make available to others using the Keyster browser, and what content to download. Don’t worry about this too much as some people with less scruples than you will make available every key for every car made by GM, Ford, Toyota… all the big car companies. Our service is a GODSEND to small car companies: A lot of people will borrow keys to those cars and drive around. People will see the new car and say “Hey, that’s a great little Yugo. I wanna buy me one o’ them”.
The key codes that you locate using Keyster are not stored on Keyster’s servers. Keyster does not, and cannot, control what keys are available to you using the Keyster browser.
Keyster respects property law and expects our users to do the same. Unauthorized driving away of someone else’s car is an infringement of their rights. As a condition to your account with Keyster, you agree that you will not use the Keyster service to infringe the property rights of others
in any way (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).
Keyster will terminate the accounts of users who are repeat violators, when we can find the time to get around to it.
I’m thinking of a spin-off business where you tell me your address, (or your “friends” address) and I’ll get you a key to your house if you have locked yourself out…
