Bookmark and Share

Lane Powell Shareholder Steven Winters was recently interviewed by Seattle’s KIRO Radio regarding cell phone privacy, which aired on March 28 at 6:00 p.m. Government rules have authorized all new cell phones have Global Positioning System (“GPS”) technology built in for emergency purposes, which allows cell phones to track where someone is at all times.

Winters identified issues in privacy, how the technology could be abused if the information falls into the wrong hands, and recommended that commercial service providers come up with ways to protect the privacy of the users.
