Feds Push for Tracking Cell Phones

You know, this kind of stuff is just getting out of hand. Tracking your whereabouts on your cell phone? I could see if this was a government issued phone but still, even then, doesn’t the public have ANY reasonable expectation of privacy? The government sure doesn’t seem to think so.

"This is a critical question for privacy in the 21st century," says Kevin Bankston, an attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation who will be arguing on Friday. "If the courts do side with the government, that means that everywhere we go, in the real world and online, will be an open book to the government unprotected by the Fourth Amendment."
