The Metro section of the Washington Post had an article yesterday:

“Robbers allegedly tracked gambler with GPS they hid on car.”

It gets better. There was another GPS enabled tracker on this guy’s car placed there by an investigator hired by his wife.

The story has been picked up by other outlets. It has all the attributes of a memorable cautionary tale that could go viral. An urban legend that is not a legend at all.

If companies that make GPS jammers were listed on the NY stock exchange, I would be contacting my broker and saying “buy!”
