When Is GPS Tracking Too Much?

March 30, 2004 6:31 am | Product Releases | Comments

Kim Potts, Chief Editor Global positioning technology (GPS) is infiltrating our lives. It is being used in cars, cell phones, wristwatches — and is being used by employers, law enforcement, and even parents. I even considered using it to track Ern this month (where'd he run off to anyway?)! All kidding aside, the satellite tracking of an individual's whereabouts is not without controversy or benefits....
