I’m not the only one worried…

I was amused to read this scathing commentary about a new GPS tracker for parents, offered by Best Buy.

I love GPS technology, but I think our society has some adjusting to do as all these products hit the market. Horror stories of psycho exes and stalkers using these devices for nefarious purposes are soon to become common-place – our privacy and anti-stalking laws need to catch up.

Also interesting is this story about how “smart phone” GPS isn’t going to kill standalone GPS.

I sure wouldn’t want to do the Binthair Challenge with an iPhone – my eXplorist may not be cute and glamorous, but it can handle a lot of abuse.
