Cell Phone Surveillance Technology and Law Enforcement, What Android Phones Reveal, Silicon Valley and Gender Discrimination (Episode #218H)

KQED World: Sun, Mar 1, 2015 -- 8:00 AM


Cell Phone Surveillance Technology and Law Enforcement
The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office became the latest Bay Area law enforcement agency to purchase a device that allows officers to track the location of cell phones. Police departments say the devices can help locate suspects and missing persons, but privacy advocates say the surveillance technology can scoop up information on every mobile phone in the area.

KQED NEWSROOM's Thuy Vu interviews Sgt. Kurtis Stenderup from the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office and Jennifer Lynch, senior staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

What Android Phones Reveal
Stanford researchers have discovered that an Android phone sensor can reveal location information - without a user's permission. KQED NEWSROOM's Scott Shafer talks to Dr. Aaron Schulman about what his team learned by looking at battery power consumption.

Silicon Valley and Gender Discrimination
The trial is the talk of Silicon Valley. Ellen Pao is suing her former employer, venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, for gender discrimination. A jury began hearing testimony this week. Re/code reporter, Liz Gannes, gives KQED NEWSROOM's Thuy Vu a first-hand account from inside the courtroom.
