Yes--another factor ties to law enforcement.
Some of the non-disclosed information in the Trayvon Martin case has been some pretty detailed stuff that was apparently obtained from his phone. Presumably pretty detailed because it required several different agencies to first "unlock" and then to interpret. Speculation is that this was GPS data that can show fairly specifically the path Martin followed (and ultimately whether it matches what Zimmerman claims).
I'm pretty definitely creeped out when I think long and hard about the extent to which others may have knowledge about me (ever had to confirm your identity by answering multiple choice questions about where you lived in such and such a year?--info is coming from driver's license infor, but it creeped me out the first time it happened).
On the other hand, I have a couple of tangential connections to a guy up in Michigan who disappeared not long ago. Car and wallet found in Missouri or somewhere. Lot of baffled folks (including family) were certainly welcome some GPS info if it were available from car or phone.
you still babbling about a cut and dry case that was decided the second the trigger was pulled?

I think you need to riot; and burn down the city wearing a T-shirt describing yourself as a Trayvon supporter.

Please hand out lots of T-shirts.

Time To Opt Out of Creepy Fed Ed Data-Mining Racket

via Michelle Malkin

FTA:

"...a February Department of Education report on its data-mining plans that contemplates the use of creepy student monitoring techniques such as 'functional magnetic resonance imaging' and 'using cameras to judge facial expressions, an electronic seat that judges posture, a pressure-sensitive computer mouse and a biometric wrap on kids’ wrists.'"

Brought to mind this old study: http://www.nytimes.com/1995/01/15/magazine/th... , that went on for absolutely decades and included many of our country's best and brightest.

Now that one was creepy.

Sitting in a chair that measures posture, not so much.

Those are adults, Reader, capable of objecting.

According to one student, "We were idiots," she said. "Idiots!"

Some were.

Similar studies, by the way, would never make it through an IRB approval process today.

Today's students would volunteer or simply download their latest sexting image from their iPhone.

The difference is how that information is used in 2013 versus 1995.

It had long been ended by 1995. But did you read about how the information was used?

Again--such a study would not make it through IRB review today, for lots of reasons.

Eyeball-Scanning Is Now a Reality, Coming to a Middle School Near You

by Molly Mulshine

Like something straight out of Gattaca, scientists have developed iris-scanning technology to be deployed at schools, airports and banks, CNN.com reports.

From CNN.com :

“‘Imagine a world where you’re no longer reliant on user names and passwords,’ Eyelock CMO Anthony Antolino told CNNMoney.‘If we’re going through a turnstile and you have authorization to go beyond that, it’ll open the turnstile for you, if you embed it into a tablet or PC, it will unlock your phone or your tablet or it will log you into your email account.’”

The software is being rolled out at some schools this fall. Kiddies will simply look into the binocular-shaped scanner, and it will “beep if they’re on the right bus and honk if they’re on the wrong one.” Apparently, this is cheaper and easier than having teachers tell kids where to go.

It also syncs with a mobile app to keep helicopter parents apprised of little Ava or Oliver’s every move, CNN.com reports.

“Every time a child boards or exits the bus, his parent gets and email or text with the child’s photograph, a Google map where they boarded or exited the bus, as well as the time and date.”

So basically, it’s now impossible for kids to peace-out and skip school undetected instead of getting on the bus. Is nothing sacred anymore?

The technology could soon be available at banks —“you can gain access to an ATM in a blink”— and airports —“the system will analyze your iris as you pass through security, identifying and welcoming you by name,” CNN.com reports.

If this means shorter lines at customs, we’re all for it.

Bad idea. Get the little skulls full of mush trained to be sheep. It should go ba ba baaa if they are on the right bus.tv
