GPS-Enabled Criminals In Massachusetts

andyrut Re:GPS has been around for a while (565 comments)

I don't see any apparent technological difference in the way GPS is used to tell 911 operators your location than a GPS-enabled ankle bracelet tells law enforcement where a criminal is located. Both relay the lat/long of a location to another party without the user doing anything.

Could you explain how it's a "totally different thing"?

Gmail Invites, Round 1

andyrut andyrut writes  |  about 10 years ago

I've got 6 Gmail invites to give out. If you want one, just add a comment to this journal entry with your email address (obfuscated, of course) and say "give me a damn gmail account."

Update: All gone. Wow, I leave that sig for 5 days and it's only when I reply to a first post that I get any takers.
