Oh thank god. All this time I was thinking that no storage device is 100% reliable and here you come along and shatter that view. Thank you David_Hart for assuring me that SD cards are 100% reliable and never experience data loss. I am switching to SD cards for all of my backups from now on; both at home and at work! I am sure my boss will love how much money I saved him by switching from costly tape and off site providers to simple SD cards. THANK YOU!

Don't be a tool.

No one is saying you keep your one copy of the nuclear launch codes on a SD card. He is saying they have become relatively inexpensive removable storage and that most phone makers outside of apple have acknowledged this.

And I'd imagine a few others based on state constitutional protections, but now it is a federal rule. Seems to be the right decision, but it will be interesting to see if some states put up systems to fast track search warrants now to speed up the process, thereby lowering the amount of judicial review.

If there is a warrant out for my arrest or a license plate is reported stolen, this system can identify it much faster than the old license plate over the radio. This seems to allow the police to stop and question people that they have a legit reason to do so, not just because you crossed the center line.

Most people lock their phones these days. Why is there not a function that I can find the owner's info (whatever they want to put there) and an ICE (In Case of Emergency) number.

Or more so, if I come upon an injured person, it would be nice to let someone know (besides 911) that they are injured.

If I find a phone, what can I do with it if I want to return it? This has happened a few time in cabs. Now days I just give it to the driver and it is now his windfall/problem.
