    We need an app because dialing 911 is too hard. :)

    Download your Stasi app right away. Put on your brown shirt and start watching out for suspicious behavior. Is your neighbor gardening or trying to bury something? Hmm. Type type type, can't be too careful....

    No joke. I have not looked at the app yet but I will. I personally wonder how they will communicate the data.

    I think the more interesting opportunity may be to see crime activity or trends overlaid on say Google Maps. I know some Police departments are doing it now. It would be nice/easy if one had an universal source of the data.

    Don't think I want to put my name and address into that...guess I'll stick with good old fashioned 911.

    Just looked at it.... 1 step closer to a 1984 society.
