Quotation of the Day for September 1, 2010
"Already, I have an application on my iPhone that broadcasts my exact location to selected friends at all times. If I were ever convicted of a crime and forced to submit to GPS tracking, I would, in theory, need only to add my probation officer to my Google Friends list and keep my phone handy. (When I showed the app to BI's Jennifer White, she had trouble fathoming that anyone would use such a thing without a court order. "Do you keep that on all the time?" she asked suspiciously.)"
- Graeme Wood, in the article Prison Without Walls, on electronic surveillance of released convicts. BI is a manufacturer of surveillance devices and provides monitoring services.
