GTX Corp. announces the Xplorer line of Smart GPS shoes.
The GTX GPS shoes have a small GPS tracking device inside the shoe actually communicates the location to a central location tracking service. So you could get your kids these GPS sneakers and define an area where it is safe for the kid to wander around. When leaving the defined area an SMS would be sent to your mobilephone notifying you of the situation.
GTX calls this feature GeoFencing.
The batteries powering the GPS unit inside the shoes last several days.
GTX Corporation will show the GPS shoes on February 1st, at the World Shoe Association (WSA) in Las Vegas. More details on the GTX site.

Gwyneth Paltrow facing Lawsuit
The famous actress and creator of a website named Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow, is facing a lawsuit by a man who claims she plagiarized his creative phrase. And she is also concerned about her ex-husband’s new relationships.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
