Catching Criminals On Your Mobile Phone
from the it's-not-just-for-talking-any-more dept
Japanese police have launched a new service for i-mode phones that lets people download pictures of their most wanted criminals. So, if you see someone looking at you, and then at their mobile phone, and then squinting at you again before running away… you might be on the most wanted list. Now, if we could just combine this with one of those “spare cycles” projects, you could pay people to have their mobile phones automatically try to track down criminals.
