Need Tracking? Just keep the cell on

Lawmakers while pushing for legislation to force sex predators and gang members to wear GPS devices may not realize that anyone using a cell phone can be tracked down anytime someone with enough authority decides to. Like this Federal Judge in NY.

Just watch how Bruce Willis character gets cornered at NY's Chinatown in "16 Blocks". It is totally possible. That particular i530 model from Motorola, using Nextel service does include a standalone GPS receiver from Sirf. But any A-GPS enabled phone will do. And even better. Just keep it on.

[Update: And here is a good example to go with it.]
