Seattle police have network capable of tracking all Wi-Fi devices, discovering past locations and more

The Seattle Police Department purchased a network in February to be used by emergency responders, though it is also capable of tracking devices with Wi-Fi enabled, revealing past location data and more.

and

Telephone companies to abandon land lines - Salon.com

Why doesn't this surprise me at all.
