    A little off-topic but it is GPS related!

    Police firing GPS tracking 'bullets' at cars during chases

    In Iowa and Florida, they have a new method of chasing suspects. The police car's grill opens up and out is projected a better method of keeping up with the vehicle they're chasing.

    Very James Bond! And a great idea too. But a bit pricey at $500 per bullet. And the first time an innocent party gets hit by a wayward "bullet"?

    Now there's an idea, what we need are gps tracking devices to conceal in our cherished bikes. So when they are stolen the police can simply look up their location and recover them, hopefully apprehending the neds responsible in the process.
