A staple of science fiction is that technological advances always have unintended consequences, this story is a good example. Seems a couple of mooks in NYC nabbed a Sidekick they found in a taxi. What they didn't know was that as soon as the individual who lost the thing bought a new one and activated it they would be able to see all the activity on the old phone and who was being active.
This is a really fascinating example of how technology changes things.
