New York Times Editorial on GPS Tracking

The New York Times has editorialized about warrantless GPS tracking.

I have often suggested that the difference between traditional surveillance and the type of information obtained through GPS tracking is not a difference in degree, but a difference in kind. See here and here on the blog and here for a draft of an article I am publishing on the topic this winter. The editorial takes a similar approach: "Digital technology raises questions about differences between cyberspace and the physical world, which most search-and-seizure laws deal with."
