摘要:

"Pinpoint tells the story of GPS, a scientific marvel that enables almost all modern technology--but is changing us in profound ways, "--Amazon.com.

Your Global Positioning System guides you across town; it also helps land planes, and anticipates earthquakes. Milner takes us on a fascinating tour of a hidden system that touches almost every aspect of our modern life, and shows how it has created new forms of human behavior. But the potential misuse of GPS data by government and corporations raise disturbing questions about ethics and privacy. GPS satisfies the scientific urge toward precision-- but may be altering the very nature of human cognition.
