Not too long ago, the Ninth Circuit Court approved secret federal GPS tracking of vehicles, to include planting the device while it's in your driveway. An American born student, Yasir Affi discovered one of the devices in his car and reported it to Wired to figure out if it was real. Within 48 hours, the FBI came knocking on his door demanding the return of their equipment.

What bothered me was how BIG the device was. You'd think they would have something far more discrete [see the link to Wired for the picture]. And here I was thinking I'd have to find crazy small bugs when I sweep through my Jeep periodically looking for foreign surveillance devices.
