US - Glympse can locate kids via cell phone GPS

Glympse joins Loopt and Google Latitude as the newest location-based service that uses cell phones’ GPS capability to tell people where you are. Glympse requires almost no effort on the part of the person who is following you. All they have to do is click on a Web link on a computer or a Web- enabled phone to see where you are on a map. To transmit your location, you need to download an application to your phone and use the application to send a "Glympse," which authorizes that person to follow you for a specific amount of time and send them the link they need to see you on a map.
