No search warrant is required if law enforcement wants to track your whereabouts through your cell phone records.
At least, that was the ruling handed down by the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans on Tuesday, according to The Wall Street Journal.

President Obama invoked the pageantry of his State of the Union address this evening to announce a long-anticipated executive order on cybersecurity, a move that caps months of discussions with technology companies and could reduce pressure on Congress to move forward with controversial new legislation.
The order will "strengthen our cyber defenses by increasing information sharing, and developing standards to protect our national security, our jobs, and our privacy," Obama said.
Obama's executive order doesn't propose new and potentially onerous regulations targeting private businesses, which Democrats had proposed in their unsuccessful legislation last year. It also … Read more
After a week of silence, Apple has weighed in on reports that it cut orders on components for production of future iPhone. As in, it's not happy about them, but it's not about to confirm or deny them.
According to chief executive Tim Cook, the company's supply chain is "complicated," and so people shouldn't look too deeply into any one aspect of it to see the bigger picture.
"Even if a particular data point were factual, it would be impossible to interpret the data point for what it means to our overall business,&… Read more

CNET has contacted Apple for comment and will update this report when we learn more.
The report appears to support the forecast of at least one analyst, … Read more

Then last week Google released some more inventory in the Play Store here in the U.S. and was met with more issues.

The 16GB model is still available, although you'll be waiting 5-6 weeks for it to ship.
