Stingray’s stealthy pervasiveness

If you think the iPhone’s ability to store your location is obtrusive and scary, wait till you hear what the *government* is doing with cell phone tracking technology. The latest threat is called “Stingray” and it’s nothing less than a network of fake cell phone towers sprinkled around the country quietly (and illegally) capturing all the cell phone calls being made in the area surrounding the fake tower. The FBI has been using these for some time now, but they’ve started distributing them to local law enforcement, ostensibly to monitor “terrorism” but, as this article points out, they’re really being used (intentionally) to keep track of you and I.

Admit it. We are living in a police state.
