Verizon launches Chaperone child-monitoring service

Verizon just launched a new GPS service that lets parents keep track of their kids. Called Chaperone, the service costs about $10 a month, and for an extra $10, it'll also let parents know when their kids have stepped out of predetermined boundaries. The first phone out the gate with this service is the LG Migo VX1000 , one of the better kiddie phones we've seen so far. Once the kid is equipped with the Migo, parents can track the tyke with their own Verizon handsets. In what seems like a new wave of child monitoring, Sprint already has a similar service for $10 a month, and new MVNO Disney Mobile will have its own version coming this summer.
