Kash Hill, over at the Not-So Private Parts, created this handy map, using data from the Electronic Frontier Foundation showing where the police are (and aren’t) required to get a warrant before searching your cell phone, with links to the applicable court cases from Google Scholar. The awesome map was made using Thinglink, which allows you to tag images, and embed them with additional content, like links to opinions, audio files of oral arguments, videos, related photos, or pretty much anything else you can think of. They’re a pretty handy way to do a fifty-state survey as well.
