In Chelsea Lately, MSNBC on December 10, 2008 at 11:37 pm

MSNBC has been heavily advertising Zoombak, a new GPS locator subscription service that promises to have your dog text message you when he runs away and your car call the cops when it gets stolen.

I also heard recently on Chelsea Lately that someone has now designed women’s underwear with a similar tracking device. The necessity of GPS-tracking someone’s undergarments notwithstanding, are we entering an era of Twilight Zone proportions for stalking and invasion of privacy? Or are these services only the next Billy Mays as seen on TV fad-of-the-moment?
