The Government Uses License Plate Scanners to Track Your Every Move

Automatic license plate readers are the most widespread location tracking technology you’ve probably never heard of. Mounted on patrol cars or stationary objects like bridges, they snap photos of every passing car, recording their plate numbers, times, and locations. At first the captured plate data was used just to check against lists of cars law enforcement hoped to locate for various reasons (to act on arrest warrants, find stolen cars, etc.).

Why That Budget iPhone Might Not (And Shouldn't) Be So Budget After All

The specter of a cheaper iPhone has haunted analyst and fanboy dreams for months. Years, in some cases. But making the healthy assumption that Apple does release a less expensive iPhone in the next few months, it’s worth taking a second to remember that “cheaper” doesn’t necessarily mean “cheap.” Especially when you’re talking about Apple.

The FDA Has Approved a Cap to Diagnose ADHD More Accurately

July 17, 2013 Leave a comment

Little League Baseball and Softball has announced that it will use 35 iPads to be the official scorekeepers of the 2013 Little League Baseball and Softball World Series. The iPads will be running an app called GameChanger, which allows scorekeepers to track scores and stats for baseball, softball, and basketball.

Announcing the iPad’s use and the latest World Series, Little League Baseball and Softball said:

“With 2.4 million Little Leaguers(R) around the world, modern technology is a great asset in communicating with all our players, coaches, families, volunteers and fans,” said Stephen D. Keener, Little League Baseball and Softball President and CEO. “Utilizing GameChanger for scorekeeping and live game updates, will bring the Little League experience to life to an online and mobile audience like never before.”

This summer, Little League scorekeepers will utilize 35 iPads to record every pitch for nine separate regional and international tournaments across several age groups. Tens of thousands of youth baseball and softball seasons and tournaments culminate with the Little League Baseball(R) World Series from August 15 through August 25 in South Williamsport, Pa.

GameChanger is a free download for iPhone and iPad.
