The offences South Gloucestershire Council has used secret surveillance against since 2010 revealed - Bristol Live
Council figures show surveillance was used once for suspected revenue or benefits fraud in 2010, and the environmental and community services department used the powers 11 times in 2012 and once in 2013.

The number of authorisations reduced dramatically in 2013 after the implementation of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.

US cell carriers are selling access to your real-time phone location data | ZDNet
In case you missed it, a senator last week sent a letter demanding the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) investigate why Securus, a prison technology company, can track any phone "within seconds" by using data obtained from the country's largest cell giants, including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint, through an intermediary, LocationSmart

Electronic Communications Privacy Act only restricts telecom companies from disclosing data to the government. It doesn't restrict disclosure to other companies, who then may disclose that same data to the government.

He called that loophole "one of the biggest gaps in US privacy law."

law enforcement may be violating the law by not seeking data directly from the phone carriers. "Law enforcement shouldn't have unfettered access to this data, whether they get it from Securus or directly from the phone companies," said the EFF.

Big Brother Goes Digital | by Simon Head | The New York Review of Books
These technologies are known as “ubiquitous computing.” They yield data less about how employees perform when working with computers and software systems than about how they behave away from the computer, whether in the workplace, the home, or in transit between the two. Many of the technologies are “wearables,” small devices worn on the body. Consumer wearables, from iPhones to smart watches to activity trackers like Fitbit, have become a familiar part of daily life; people can use them to track their heart rate when they exercise, monitor their insulin levels, or regulate their food consumption.
