  • that cellphones pinpoint their owner's location even when
    they are not in use? In a recent New Zealand investigation evidence was given
    by the New Zealand Police tracking the movements of a suspect using cellphone
    records. Telecom New Zealand says they receive about 12,000 requests a year
    for official access to information about cellphone, landline and internet
    users. Vodafone would not give a figure but say they deal with the police on a
    daily basis. Police in Switzerland recently admitted that they have been
    secretly tracking the movements of more than one million cellphone users.
  • that changes to be included in the Telecommunications Bill
    in New Zealand will make it compulsory for telephone network operators to
    intercept communications going over their network, when authorised by a
    warrant from the Police. The Government will pay about NZ$3 million so calls
    from all land and mobile phone networks, as well as emails can be intercepted.
  • that Digital Angel Corporation has announced that it has
    entered into a product and technology licensing agreement that makes available
    its proprietary, implantable microchips, scanners and delivery system,
    including its state-of-the-art, FDA-compliant physician call center, to
    VeriChip Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions.
    On April 4, 2002, Applied Digital Solutions announced that it has received
    written guidance that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not
    consider VeriChip's personal verification technology to be a regulated
    medical device. This clears the way for the sales, marketing and distribution
    of Digital Angel Corporation technology licensed to VeriChip Corporation in
    the United States. On April 8, 2002, Applied Digital Solutions announced that
    VeriChip Corporation will launch a new Global VeriChip Subscriber (GVS)
    Registry service on May 1, 2002. This program will enable VeriChip subscribers
    to store pertinent personal verification and healthcare information in the
    company's secure database. The GVS Registry will be hosted and maintained by
    Digital Angel Corporation's operation and support center, which includes a
    state-of-the-art, FDA-compliant, 24/7 physician-staffed call center. For
