I had no trouble getting this, but I’m still working through the seventh Harry Potter book. Recall the Weasleys have a clock that shows where each member of the family? Sometimes they are in “mortal danger?” The folks at Microsoft Research have built one of a kind. Yes, it’s built of location information from phones, but instead of indicating exact locations offers up “home” “schoo” “work” or “someplace else.”
