i took this from the forbidden knowledge site, was interesting.......enjoy.


By 2005, the government will be able to track you down through your cell phone.


Cell-phone manufacturers are under a federal mandate to equip mobiles with location-tracking technology beginning this October. By 2005, 95 percent of all cell phones must be able to be traced with an accuracy of about 1,000 feet or better.

While such phones could be lifesavers in an emergency, the order from the Federal Communications Commission has raised serious questions about invasion of privacy.

"For most people, it’s a very scary proposition that the government can use not only your mobile phone but your Palm Pilots ... and any other mobile device to track your every movement," said attorney Albert Gidari, of the Perkins and Coie law firm in Seattle.

Making mobile phones capable of tracking users' locations will involve planting GPS chips in the handsets or installing new infrastructure in cell sites.

Cellular providers plan commercial uses for the technology, such as getting directions if someone is lost, finding nearby restaurants or locating family members and friends who have gotten separated in a crowd.

"Wireless operators already know where consumers are by virtue of the fact that the phone is on," pointed out Ken Arneson, the chief strategy officer at Telecommunication Systems, a provider of the location-tracking technology. "What’s different here is that now carriers are looking to commercialize that and need to do that to offset the cost of putting this technology in place."

He estimated that it could cost billions of dollars to outfit the 110 million cell phones in this country with the tracking mechanism.

Some worry the technology will be used in other ways, with providers selling information to merchants or worse: stalkers or abusive relatives.

"If the fundamental principles of privacy aren’t in place, there will be a revolt against the widespread use of the technology," Gidari said.

Arneson said the privacy issue is being taken seriously and is one of the chief considerations in going forward with installing the technology.

"We as a company believe that there will be privacy solutions in place ... that essentially allow consumers to opt in and opt out of these various services," Arneson said. "Privacy is an enormous concern."

I'm surprised that it hasn't happened already.
I thought cellphone tracking was already being done.

Get over it yo. The government tracks you in many ways. They have mainframe computers screening e-mail and telephone calls. They have access to our transaction history with our credit cards and bank accounts. They have access to our phone calling records. In most major retail stores and business districts across the Nation there's security camera's watching over us when we walk in buildings or when we are in the parking lot or even when we walk on the sidewalk. There's even camera's at inner-sections on city streets, camera's on freeways and camera's even at a lot of our apartments. There's no such thing as privacy anymore.

Yes, weve all been tagged by the government for many years, with social security being one of the first ways. Now days almost every interaction with another human or machine you take place in is being scanned by the gov't. For instance, if you are in a metropolitan area you are recorded on video six times an hour.
