You forgot that this only occured because the vehicle in question was too old to have the technology installed at the factory.
Almost all modern cars are sold with a GPS in them via "on-star" or whatever satillite navigation system you care to name...so, they won't have to get
a warrent to put a GPS on your car anymore.
It also overlooks that most cellphones ARE a GPS tracking system and the most advanced of them won't permit the owner to remove the power supply to
render them inert.
Next will come the microchipping of the populations.
Undoubtedly, times and technologies change.
Given that I work in IT and have for just over twenty years, yepp, I'm pretty well familiar with what you are telling us about.
Honestly, the *very* idea of having On-Star or any equivalent is utterly repugnant to me. As are the "black boxes" commonly in today's vehicles.
The very fact that you HAVE a cell phone allows them to track you...unless...muwahahahahaha....
Yepp, got in on that, and will have my very own sometime pretty soon.
Unfortunately, used to be that you could simply open the phone and disconnect the battery. My phone, the new HTC One is sealed shut, you CANNOT
remove the battery, or even upgrade the battery to a larger capacity one.
The main reason why I posted this article was because any move to restrict the Fed from senseless abilities to track is an excellent thing in my book.
I am insanely fierce about my privacy, and unfortunately I am also well aware that we have precious, precious little left in today's world. Fact is,
where most believe that we have some guaranteed "right to privacy", truth is, no, we honestly don't.
