Mobile Phone GPS Tracking

I found a very cool web site our readers might be interested in. It just makes my day when someone comes up with this kind of technology, then makes it freely available on the internet! Do you want to know where your kids are; now you can track their cell phone in real time. Did someone steal your cell phone; track it and see where it is right now, then call the police.

One thing I really like about this site is that it uses the Google Maps Satelite Images with a street map overlay to pinpoint the location of any cell phone. I think it must be using more than just simple GPS data because it seems to find all phones, even ones that are not GPS enabled. It must triangulate off the nearby towers as well.
