HAPPY TALK: Big Brother is watching you

For those old enough to recall black and white television and the words of George Orwell in his book 1984 (published 1949 and a 1954 BBC TV series) the words 'Big Brother is Watching You' have come back to haunt us.  A GPS device called 'Traakit' is now on sale which gives operators the knowledge of where the gadget is anywhere in the world.  This might be OK, according the Daily Telegraph, for Mrs Rachel Wilder keeping her eyes (if that is the word) on her son Harry in Australia from the living room, but we can see all sorts of repercussions.  Traakit costs UKP279 plus UKP11 a month service charge or can be rented for UKP50 a month. www.traakit.co.uk
