Tagged and Tracked

As a privacy zealot, I don’t own a cellphone — you know, that sexy little device that allows police to track you at all times without having to get a search warrant.

In Newsweek, an attorney for service providers is quoted as saying that his clients get “thousands” of “requests per month” from police who need merely to tell a judge that tracking a cellphone is part of an investiga- tion. Then, the police know where you are 24/7; they know who you call and who calls you.

I’ll put up with a little less convenience, thanks.
