I guess this is for those people for whom UPS and FedEx’s tracking functions are inadequate. I think it’s fun checking where my new RAM or mouse or whatever is, even if it’s only updated every five or six hours. Therefore, it might be even funner to be able to see exactly where it is at all times.
Actually, I get the feeling this is more for tracking incredibly important packets that can’t be couriered, or maybe to provide a level of oversight on the shipping companies to make sure they’re not driving your package across the states and back before delivering it. It’s extremely small so it will fit in an envelope or (I dare say) a purse. Unfortunately, at nearly $700 it’s a little out of most consumers’ (and stalkers’) price range.
