Notes from the Electronic Cottage 06/15/06

It’s pretty neat when you can find out where you are by consulting the satellite stars. GPS technology is really great when you need to find out where you are in your car, and get directions to where you’re going. But it might not be so great when others want to find out where you are, how fast you were driving, or, using a different technology, just what you’re listening to on your car radio. All of that is possible today. Be advised.
