Cell Phone Owner Tracks Down Thief Using GPS

This is just one of many such stories that are going to be occurring on a more frequent basis: a cell phone thief was quickly tracked down when the owner activated the GPS program that could pinpoint the location of the cell phone. I imagine that with the rise of RFID tags and GPS-enabled everything, that people are going to be able to tag their valuable equipment themselves and keep track of them quite easily. I can even imagine a website that charges you a monthly fee so that you can see where your ‘stuff’ is at all times. Perhaps an add-on service will be to alert you in case your items go outside of a certain range.
