My recent story about locating a lost phone via cell triangulation drew a few questions about its accuracy, including some privacy concerns. This reminds me of the service offered by a local telco for tracking a handset called Globe Tracker. Globe Tracker has been around for a couple of years now but it's pretty useful in some cases. Basically, what it does is provide an estimate of the location of an active phone number and its user. The Tracker website also provides a map for reference. It's not very accurate but can be as close as a few meters of…
