from the who's-listening dept
The most recent Wiretap Report, published by the US federal judiciary, reveals that 68% of all wiretaps granted to state and federal authorities were targeted at wireless devices. That’s a very high percent when you consider that the US only has a wireless penetration rate around 50%. Our criminals must be early adoptors.

A little more than meets the eye
The article does include cordless home phone as a wireless device. I think just about everyone I know has one of these.
Re: A little more than meets the eye
Good point. It also includes pagers which I know are still popular with many people. The point I was really trying to make (instead I opted for a lame atempt at humor) is that this report is another indication of how wireless out society is becoming.
