Yes, it's reasonable to assume that your cellphone is betraying your every move, if it's on you. The cops ignore the laws anyways - we have to deal with it somehow. The bet way is to not make it easy for them, by using other ways of communicating that don't trigger the cop spying machinery.

Carrying a tracking device is not a good idea if you don't want to be tracked. Cellphones are basically tracking devices that also place phone calls and take photos of incriminating evidence.

Leave your phone at home when doing naughty things - it will give you an alibi!

I get the sense that these folks want to eliminate the non-pixel space between adjacent LCD screens. That will take some fancy screen design, as the connections to the controller chips occur at the edges of the glass. Those connections are currently many pixels wide.

I imagine that someone will figure out a way, but I won't hold my breath.

The disk drive makers, and there are only two left, are companies that have been doing nothing but making disk drives for 30 years. This is true for a reason - they are focused entirely on making disk drives and nothing else, and they have the decades of experience to do it right. Their prices are insanely low and their quality is very high. Google knows that it would never catch up to their abilities.

The school admin was told that what we did was impossible, so your concern never registered on them. Besides, they need to be able to remove locks that students left on lockers past the end of the school year, or on the shared lockers at any time. (These are gym lockers, not hall lockers. Smelly socks etc.) Smelly socks don't warrant any sort of controls on keys.

My brother and I each made a master key for our school's Master combination padlocks that everyone used in gym class, using an old house key and a file. It took a year and a half for the school to find out. They suspended us for three days after telling us that their locksmith had informed them that what we had done was not possible.
