One last comment. This is an invasion of privacy, however upon some thought I can see why they are doing this(i don't condone it). It would seem that
child porn viewers are going to heavely used wifi hotspots. So,currently if some dude is downloading childporn they can trace only so far to the ip.
If it happens to be a free wifi zone and 20+ people are all on and downloading crap, they can't just start searching everybodys computers. This
device however can pinpoint where the data streams are going from the wifi hotspot to the precise computer recieving the information. Either by
triangulation(more precise) or a device mac address(which can be spoofed).
If this tech was outside the average joes ability it would be much creepier, but with a pentium 2 and a software application you can do the same for
thousands less. Heck, anyone that lives near a nerd is most likely getting data logged in some way.
