@arthurmaki: ...my wife could not find the parked car at the mall a few times and this would definitely help her not get into embarrassing situations...

Does your wife have a smartphone like an iPhone or an Android phone? If so, you can download a really cheap app that will allow her to remember her location when she parks the car and then locate it later.

I've been using "Carrr Matey" -- a pirate-themed app along the same lines. You "drop anchor" when you park, and follow the map back to your "vessel."

I don't think I'll need this app most of the time -- but at Christmas the local shopping mall is jam-packed with cars, and past experience has shown me that this would be useful then. And I can also see it being useful when I'm traveling and park a hire car in an unfamiliar city... Actually, I can't wait to try it in earnest...

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
