Guest: Cyrus Farivar, Senior Tech Policy Reporter, Ars Technica, Author of “Habeas Data: Privacy vs. the Rise of Surveillance Tech” Amid several rulings being made by the Supreme Court right now, there's a major privacy ruling on the case of a man named Tim Carpenter, who was convicted of robbing Radio Shack and T-Mobile stores. Police were able to arrest him because they got four months of his cell phone location data from his wireless provider, but got that info without a warrant, which Carpenter says was a violation of his fourth amendment rights. The Supreme Court agreed. Listen to our conversation with Cyrus Farivar about his book Habeas Data
