Submission + - GPS phone helps find transplant recipient

djp928 writes: GPS locators in a mother's cell phone enabled police to locate her and her son in order to inform them that a donor heart had become available for the 10-year-old's lifesaving transplant surgery. It's a heartwarming (pun intended) story, but how long before police are using this ability to find people for less altruistic reasons?
