Notes from the Electronic Cottage 3/06/08

Cell phones are everywhere, and are becoming powerful enough to let people carry their “digital lives” in their pockets. Some are beginning to wonder if that’s such a great idea, especially if a person gets stopped for running a stop sign or not wearing a seat belt and gets arrested. At that point, all your personal information may be the police officer’s as well as your own.
Seems we live in a digital world with laws that were made for a physical world, and the consequences can be unsettling.
