“I’m in Tesco’s, I’ll have to call you back later”.
I wasn’t of course, but the conversation was boring me to tears. They’ll never know I was actually in bed, reading my newspapers.
But I won’t be able to do that for long, if these two sites have their way. MapAMobile and FleetOnline track your mobile phone’s location. And if you’re like me your mobile phone never leaves your side. The worst thing about these sites is that anyone with cash can access them. They ask the mobile users permission before tracking them, but that can easily be done if you know the person. You’ll never be able to pull a sickie off work again…
