James Kim's Family Saved by Cellphone

It's poetic: CNet editor loves gadgets, gadget saves man's family.

Authorities said searchers had tracked the family by tracing signals from a cell phone the Kims were carrying. The Kims were not able to make a call, but their attempt was enough to narrow the search area.

Cellphones are the new Lassie.

James is still missing, having trekked away from the family car with a couple of lighters, a strobe from his camera, and snowshoes. This is a man who thought to siphon the gastank for fire, and burn the tires when that was done. He's resourceful, and we're crossing our fingers.
