Verizon to launch mobile chaperone service

Verizon Wireless, the No. 2 U.S. cell phone service provider, plans on Monday to launch a wireless service that lets parents check their children's whereabouts and alerts them when they venture out of bounds.

Parents can use the service to set up geographic limits and receive text alerts if their children, who also carry phones, go too far from home. The service also lets parents check where their offspring are via a map on their cell phone or computer.

Anybody out there want to hazard a guess as to how many suspicious wives or husbands will be giving Verizon cell phones as birthday present (or "just because" gifts) to their spouses?

"Honey, it's for you. Because I care."
