Sprint helps parent keeps tabs on kids

Posted By on April 13, 2006

Here’s a winner for all those teens wanting cell phones. (better link)Sprint Nextel introduced a wireless service to help parents find their children. The locator device uses a mapping system that is accurate to a radius of 2 to 100 yards. This could provide and interesting conversation when parents and teens discuss the evening events?

It is branded the “Family Locator Service” but more than likely will gain a more appropriate ‘clock and dagger’ nickname. One benefit for teens is that they’ll have time to contemplate their fate, as the service also notifies children via text message that their parents have checked up on their location.
