When you use a cell phone your location is logged.

Remember, technological advances are driven by the need to control.

That aside, I'm sure once spring comes to the feudal Arab Golf-states, women
will be a driving force.

Doesn't seem like a very robust system.
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, November 23 2012 @ 12:49 PM EST
It would be much to easy for a group like Anonymous to start sending thousands
of fake 'your wife is trying to leave the country' messages a day. The real
ones would become so hard to separate from the fake ones (if it was well done)
that the system would become useless as there would be to many false alarms.
Creating a automatic censor to find and delete those text messages might be
fairly easy, but it would be a large amount of computer overhead (unless they
already scan all text messages), get them in trouble for being a surveillance
state (though admittedly probably not much), and would just turn the whole thing
into a competition to get around the censors.

Saudi Arabia inherits a medieval empire
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, November 23 2012 @ 03:14 PM EST
I've just finished re-reading Richard Burton's
A Pilgrimage to El-Medinah and Meccah,
with its observance of the Arabian refusal
to accept Victorian era modernisation.
Yet they once controlled an empire from
the Atlantic to the Ganges, with scholars
from all of Europe and Africa flocking to
their universities. Sic transit gloria mundi.
