Be your own Big Brother: Covert home spy gadgetry

"if you call their mobile and hear a different ring tone, you know they're abroad." So true. An employee called in sick. Called back later, foreign ringtone. Not terribly clever especially if you work in telephony support.

Even less clever to show up with a nice tan and a bag full of duty free cigarettes under the desk.

To prove AWOL you'd often need spy equipment. Not so in this severely career limiting case.
