Whereabouts clock?

[Runs to Google.]

Hmmm.... interesting. It sounds cool. We'll have to wait to see how integration works and other things like cost.

For those that don't know what it is either, here's an article:

I think thats far from useful.
Usually u know where members of ur family are, if u don't and u want to then u can just call them.

Well duh Nasha, They said they got the idea from the books


And I doubt it will be an actual clock, maybe a frame ont he wall maybe, but I think it wont become succesful, if you need to know where someone is you just call them and ask

If theyre in trouble they dial 911, If they go missing for x ammount of days the GPS in most phones tells police where they were in the past x days

More than likely its just for publicity

Edit: Next thing you know were going to have moving picture frames, News Papers that have videos on them, and things you hold in your hand that make things do stuff from far away

Oh wait, we do lol
