  1. Pretty sure the company involved in the third-party location tracking story is pronounced like “Secure Us”. Get it?
    Actually, I’m very sure, as I did my usual trick for difficult to pronounce company names and called their main number to see how it’s pronounced on there. It’s about as close to “go to the source” as I can get on these things!
