    ...but there would be invasion of privacy issues, since your iLet could easily do urinalysis and stool sampling and broadcast the results on the web.

      ...that would do for the iLet what MPAA and RIAA want to do for your computer and the internet in-general.  Except in this case MPAA will stand for Motorist Poo Analysis Agency, which we can expect to see under the next Republican administration.  Bad enough for ordinary drivers if they get stopped, but when truckers pull into the weigh station ...uh oh!

      But the very fact that people tolerate being forced to pull down their pants for their boss (random piss testing) is already way beyond disgusting.  What happens when two dogs fight and one loses?  The loser rolls over and bares its abdomen to the winner.  In a very real way, that is the ultimate mammalian gesture of submission.  And it's what people are doing every time they submit to a piss test.   (And you wonder why unions don't stand up to bosses more often?)
