I heard a radio commercial about this "Gemini GLS" product. Looking at the website it appears to be a cellphone-sized and cellphone-like device that can be tracked by a website. I've been thinking about it in terms of my young neice, and it has a couple of claimed features like a panic button, ability to dial a couple of predefined numbers and geographic alert if she wanders outside a certain area.
I can think of several practical problems, like how will a kid keep a cellphone-sized device strapped to them and wouldn't an abductor immediately take away anything that looks like a cell phone, but I think it is still interesting as an additional safety tool (but not as a substitute for anything).
Of course the site has no pricing online, and I can't find anecdotal quotes anywhere. Does anyone know what their plans cost or have any other comments about the device or service?
(By the way, this is a perfect example of a post that would be considered spam from a first-time poster, but from a poster that's been around and participated in the on-topic stuff has some credibility as a real question as opposed to an astroturf attempt.)
Come to think of it, I've heard it's possible to locate cell phones via cell tower triangulation. Do any normal cell phones offer this feature yet?
