UPDATE: Privacy For Sale

I’ve been following the story, first broken by Americablog, concerning the sale of cellular phone records. This morning, the Sun-Times reports that “Cell call lists reveal your location.”

That’s right, not only can strangers pay for your phone records, they can now track your movements within 500-1,000 feet. “You can track ’em for a week with a fully charged cell phone,” said a private investigator whom has used the technology on behalf of his clients.

Worried yet? Do you think this information should be legal to purchase?

Oh, and still no word, nor official statement, from my “service” provider, T-Mobile.
