Amazon.com’s nanny gift card?

Tech site GeekWire reports on an Amazon.com patent filing that, despite the obvious privacy implications, makes me sorry I didn’t think of it first.

… digging into the text, the approach includes the option for the giver to not only recommend items via the gift card but also to restrict the types of things the card can be used to buy — and to get a report back on what the recipient purchases.

Sounds like something every parent could appreciate.
