[Tim Cushing on stupidity in Texas](http://www.techdirt.com/blog/wireless/articles/20130402/19381122555/eff-files-amicus-brief-texas-high-court-battling-state-prosecutors-claims-that-searching-cell-phone-is-no-different-than.shtml):
> Arguing that a cell phone is nothing more than a set of pants pockets is deliberately understating the reality in order to justify skirting the Fourth Amendment.
The argument is that because a cellphone is in a person’s pocket, it is fine to search the contents of the cellphone if you already are searching the pants. Which is stupid and has been shut down twice, though Texas is trying a third time.
Personally I think the smart move is for cellphones to delete after just three bad pass code unlocks instead of ten. Then I could let the police delete the contents by telling them the wrong code just three times.
