Finding your stuff just got easy

Well, it isn't cheap, but it sure is handy: the SlimTRAK GPS device.
Excerpt:


Weighting in at only 3.6 ounces, the all new SlimTRAK real time tracking system makes all others obsolete! No more complicated wiring or GPS antenna mounting. Due to new state-of-the-art "high sensitivity antenna" technology, the very small SlimTRAK tracker is completely self contained, including 4 standard "AA" batteries that power the unit for a full 3 months. Of course, if you prefer a permanent installation, connection assembly with battery back up is also available.

INSTALLS IN SECONDS
Once activated, SlimTRAK can be installed anywhere in the vehicle, including trunk, under seat, in glove box, or any other convenient location. For covert applications, our custom fitted waterproof magnetic case allows for quick installation under the vehicle or under hood. Unit can easily be moved from one vehicle to another. Also great for protecting heavy equipment, boats, industrial equipment and dozens of other items.

EXTREMELY EASY TO USE
No rocket scientist need here! Unit operates using GPS and GSM communication technology. To track your vehicle, simply access the SlimTRAK website from any internet active computer, type in your password, and a detailed map with tracking information appears. Info includes time, speed of vehicle, street address of vehicle and last stop. Updates every 5 minutes, to keep you on target. Unit can be programmed for for faster or slower update frequency, if desired. Toll free customer support assures that all your questions be answered promptly.

No, the $845 price tag isn't cheap, but it's still a pretty effective way to track your car. And, if you're interested, it could be used to track pretty much anything else, such as your briefcase, suitcase, etc. If the airline loses your luggage, you can tell them where to find it. Pretty darned cool.

Happy Pi Day

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful Pi Day today( March 14, 3.14- get it?). Today is also the day that we celebrate Albert Einstein's birth. Happy B-Day, Albert.

Coincidentally, I happen to be reading Life of Pi right now. So I've got that going for me, too.
