Over the last 50 years, humanity has developed an extraordinary shared utility: the global positioning system. Omnipresent, free, and available to all, GPS powers everything from your phone to the Internet to the Mars Rover. Greg Milner tells the sweeping story of GPS, from its conceptual origins as a bomb guidance system to its present ubiquity.

"Ignore the GPS. That Ocean Is Not a Road." is from the Tech section of The New York Times. It was written by Greg Milner and narrated by Fleet Cooper.
