Do you emit?

If you answer "No" or "WTF?" you might want to read this article from Wired. Short version is that if you have any device in your home that emits radio waves, then your home is subject to a warrantless search by yet another group of government neo-goons.

If you are a ham radio operator, or if you're running an unlicensed broadcast transmitter, I can see it. But if you have a wi-fi router (which operates in the unlicensed portion of the spectrum)? Cordless phones (ditto)? The microwave (ditto squared)? What a load of crap.

It's about time to push the reset button.
