Supreme Court to Weigh Cellphone Searches

This article from the Wall Street Journal points out an interesting fight between privacy advocates and law enforcement.

If you're concerned about your privacy and your phone's contents, always have the latest model phone and make sure it's password/swipe protected. If you're law enforcement, you'll need a very expensive set of tools to crack passwords, JTAG, and chip-off phones when arrestees invoke their Fifth Amendment right to silence, and refuse to give up their password.
