I enjoy writing stories about current technology with just a twist to make it science fiction. I read a blog called Defense Tech that summarizes current military technology. The article below is a Defense Tech summary of NY Times story about how cell phones are being used to catch criminals. I have seen the idea used several times on the generic TV cop shows, Crime Scene and Order (or whatever they call them).
I think I have an idea for a story about a criminal being trapped in an overly complex web of technological snooping. Read the story and think about the poor guy texting his girlfriend about his progress evading the police and tell me you can’t see a plot or two there.

I would have linked to the NY Times story, but they require registration.
