Surprised I have not seen this on here yet, as this board seems to be very "pro-privacy" in general. What do you think about the President, be it Obama or the next, being able to commandeer cell phone towers and pipe an "emergency message" into your pocket? Personally, I feel like this is a superb example of government waste. With the amount of people using smart phones with data plans rising every day, in addition to car radios, TV stations, etc... I can't imagine that this will reach many more, if any more people that would not be aware of a situation already.
