From the slashdot article :
Ars Technica report covering the release of documents obtained under the FOIA suggesting that the Justice Department may have been evading privacy laws in their use of "triggerfish" technology. Triggerfish are cell-tower spoofing devices that induce cell phones to give up their location and other identifying information, without recourse to any cell carrier.

ahh... the "patriot act"

you no longer have any rights in this country...

next they will be installing web cams in every home.....
I am sure this has been happening for a long time. Don't do anything illegal and you have nothing to worry about. smile
Yeah, but who's defining "Illegal". What was Slick Willy's line in the trial in Arkansas? "That depends on what what means."? frown John C.
HaHa. true that.
If you're not a terrorist pig, they don't want you in the way of their terrorist investigations.
Again, who's defining 'terrorist pig'. frown John C.

We're really straying from the posting guidlines for this category. What's being discussed really belongs in the Phone Booth.
Come one Bill,

We are just having a little fun big fella....
Yes we are straying, however,..

It's all baby steps people, today we have nothing to worry about unless we are calling suspect areas over seas. Maybe a little more next year. Ten years from now, every call. We will not even know when it happened, it will just be that way.
I'm locking this, as it seems no one has anything to post about the topic at hand.
