TECH TO STOP TER­ROR?

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - @HELPGG -

Re­cently, it was re­ported that a mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion has been devel­oped that uses the Global Po­si­tion­ing Sys­tem (GPS) to trace the lo­ca­tion of other cell phones. Why can’t such an ap­pli­ca­tion be used to trace stolen cell phones. Also, I sug­gest we should work on a de­vice that can ‘smell out’ RDX and other ma­te­ri­als used in bombs. If phones be­come in­stru­men­tal in prevent­ing ter­ror at­tacks, they would have really be­comes smart.

GPS is al­ready used to track mo­bile phones and even other de­vices and to pre­vent theft. Please read our re­view of the McAfee anti-theft soft­ware be­ing loaded in some ul­tra­books be­ing sold in the coun­try.
