Tech To Stop Terror?
Recently, it was reported that a mobile application has been developed that uses the Global Positioning System (GPS) to trace the location of other cell phones. Why can't such an application be used to trace stolen cell phones. Also, I suggest we should work on a device that can 'smell out' RDX and other materials used in bombs. If phones become instrumental in preventing terror attacks, they would have really becomes smart. - Mahesh Kapasi, New Delhi

GPS is already used to track mobile phones and even other devices and to prevent theft. Please read our review of the McAfee anti-theft software being loaded in some ultrabooks being sold in the country.
