The Supreme Court Phone Location Case Will Decide the Future of Privacy - vice.
Quote:
For all of the attention paid to former FBI Director Jim Comey's highly anticipated testimony before the Senate intelligence committee last Thursday, the most important constitutional law development from last week took place across the street (and three days earlier), when the Supreme Court agreed to hear argument in Carpenter v. United States later this year—though exactly when, we're not sure.

Carpenter raises a specific question about whether Americans have an expectation of privacy in historical "cell-site location information" ("CSLI"). The Petitioner, Timothy Carpenter, was one of two defendants convicted for his role in a series of armed robberies in Michigan and Ohio, based in part on 127 days of CSLI data that placed him between ˝ and 2 miles from the robberies around the time they were committed.
Our surveillance society on trial.

Or just maybe criminals will get smart enough to turn off their cell phones during crimes?

I see two fundamental issues at play here: First, that the data exists; second, how it is used. We live in a time when a mind-boggling amount of data is being generated, and stored, on us, even without our knowledge. Every time we use the Internet, make a phone call, move our vehicle, turn on our microwave (right, Kellyanne?), we are feeding a vast network that records, stores and analyzes information about us.

And that data is then use against us - to target us with advertising, try to influence our vote, charge us with crimes, change our insurance profiles. Big data is not our friend, no matter how we are sold that bill of goods. It may be good for corporations, for law enforcement agencies, for political parties, but try to think of one instance where you, as an individual, has benefited. I'll wait.
