Baby Mozart

Alright, well maybe not Mozart considering that this baby's (not sure if I can call him that) invention has nothing at all to do with music or its composition and everything to do with GPS. Jon Fischer, a 17-year-old from Lurenurg, Mass., was named the grand-prize winner at a competition sponsored by the Young Entrepreneur Foundation.

His company, Speed-Demon, developed a portable GPS box that mounts on a car dashboard and records what roads a driver travels on and at what speeds — allowing parents to monitor their children's driving habits. The product has a patent pending and is expected to cost $149 when manufactured.

Doubt his friends will appreciate the invention much but hey, he's now famous.

You know, maybe Jonathan Fischer was not trying to take away teens privacy.

I mean, he developed a way that parents can only know your location and speed when you are speeding. So, if you do NOT speed then you have nothing to worry about. He just trying to save a few teens lives and considering I have already had enough friends killed in car accidents, I support his product.

I bet you'll be the first one thanking him when your friend is saved.
