Forget the Price of Stamps...



For a mere $695.00 you can buy a GPS Mail Logger that will track the whereabouts of a letter.


The tracker is a fourth of an inch thin that can be placed inside of an envelope and sent through the US Post Office. It's purpose is to track the exact location, speed and altitude of your letter.


I'm not quite clear on what would be so important that you'd spend $700 bucks to know where it is at all times. It brings to mind that an evil genius who wanted to send me a letter bomb would know the precise instance that I blew myself up opening his envelope. This device also brings new meaning to certified mail. Dare I say you'd have to be certifiably insane to spend this much money when you could buy a sturdy laptop or 2 gaming systems for the price of one GPS Mail Logger?


Regardless, just don't forget to weigh your envelope and add the extra postage if you're going to use a GPS Mail Logger. It wouldn't be so fun if the letter was returned to sender.

Sounds like something they'd use in a bad spy movie, doesn't it? "Here, deliver this letter for me, won't you? Wait--I don't have a stamp. Well, mail it when you get a stamp." The person to be tailed puts the innocent letter in his briefcase and the evil spy can track him wherever he goes with the good guy none the wiser--ha, ha! Then is turns into a schlocky misadventure comedy as the good guy unwittingly drops the letter and it is picked up by a cute dog, thwarting the evil the bad guy would do, but affording great laughs following the dog and the plot.

Yeah, who'd pay that much to track mail? But I bet there's a few Significant Others out there who'd pay that to keep track of a special someone....
