Around the Web

Privacy Lost: These Phones Can Find You   by Laura M. Holson, October 23, 2007 - The New York Times (registration required) -- Two new questions arise, courtesy of the latest advancement in cellphone technology: Do you want your friends, family, or colleagues to know where you are at any given time? And do you want to know where they are?

Technology, the Stealthy Tattletale  by Christopher Maag, October 27, 2007 The New York Times (registration required) - A technological revolution is making it possible not just to track down escaping bank robbers but to find missing things and people far more quickly and precisely than ever.

The change is powered less by new technologies than the artful combination of existing ones, mainly the Internet, cellphones and G.P.S. satellites. In some cases, the new devices linked to these systems can even detect a theft before it happens.
