Cell Phones


This paragraph is about how many people own cell phones.  According to Brittney (no last name given), there are more then 156 MILLION people in the world that use the amazing cell phone. IsnŐt that a lot.  I think so.




       This paragraph is about what a criminal tracker is.

According to Forbes.com, A criminal tracker is a device that the police can put on a criminal's leg to keep track of him/her.  The device can NOT be cut off.  The device has GPS so the criminal can always be located.  By the way, did I tell you that the criminal is on parole (let out of jail for a time)?


       This paragraph is about what a GPS wheelchair is.

This experimental wheelchair was developed by engineers in Germany. Otto Bock HealthCare has invented an all-wheel drive wheelchair that has knobby, off-road tires, a hybrid engine, and best of all--GPS. This wheelchair allows disabled drivers to cruise off-road. The GPS system is very helpful. It transmits the patient's location back to the person who is in charge of taking care of the patient. This is very helpful. If the patient gets lost or, in some cases, when a patient tries to "run away," the person in charge can track-down the location of the wheelchair. By the way, the transmitter also sends the patient's vital statistics--like heart rate, blood pressure, etc.
