Duluth News Tribune | 05/26/2006 | Cell phones, laptops let the world know where you are

I actually kind of like this article, but I wish they had done a few things differently. For one, it’s still much more difficult than implied to track someone with a great deal of accuracy (“pinpoint” is used again; and so the trend continues).

What I do like is this quote from the Center for Democracy and Technology: “tracking ‘reveals sensitive information about a person that may have no relation to criminal activity’.”

Also note the mention from Skyhook Wireless‘ Jed Rice that there are no federal privacy laws for wireless location tracking.
