In listening to the BBC World Report this morning, I heard two really interesting pieces on technology. One was about Tracking One's Stolen Laptop/phone/etc.

The other was about using brain power to control tech: CLICK HERE Kind of scary implications?!

The story in the link goes on to talk about how smart phones can be located via their GPS software. Unfortunately, it can go wrong, as this story shows: Police-break-into-wrong-house.

The police say that it is not their fault as they broke in in good faith but an innocent man now faces a bill to repair his front door because technology is not as good as people think it is.
