Look at this:

It strongly reminds me of the special tracking features Tuck put into his Stinkpad...

Or listening to me; I've been saying similar things for, I think, a decade. Mostly related to a car alarm, rather than a computer/cellphone package, but very similar.

I do love the webcam concept. =)

Maybe you should try hitting them up for prior art on any patents they have that you have described in your fiction. I seem to recall Heinlein had described the waterbed in his fiction sufficiently enough it was counted as prior art and invalidated some shyster type's attempt to lock the concept up in patents. Or you could try going to the competition and mention your prior art in fiction that you'd be willing to license somehow...

One of the early waterbed manufacturers actually sent Heinlein at least one royalty check. Smile

And A.C. Clarke's stories invalidated the effort to patent the idea of geosynchronous satellites.
