There are two kinds of personal trackers available in the market. Ones that uses cellular signals, they operate using a mobile phone carrier and another which uses radio signals. A major disadvantage of the former is that that they work only in areas where there is 3G mobile phone coverage and in addition, have an ongoing service charge for the tracker. Radio wave trackers do not have a service charge but have a longer range and the signal transmission is limited to a handheld receiver. Though they have their pros and cons, these devices are almost indispensable in today’s fast paced world.
As you grow up and have children, you don't realise how time flies. We always imagine our own parents as strong, healthy and independent. Then one day you ask yourself ' How did we all get so old?'.

As parents get older we start to question 'How the hell did that happen?
It wasn't until my mum told me how concerned she was that Dad had dropped his electric drill (plugged in and live) onto the floor of the hull which was covered in water that I really started to think. 'OMG! What is dad doing? And he shouldn't be doing that by himself at 70'.
