Whatever Britain wants, Britain gets. Whatever the U.S. wants, the U.S gets. Whatever Canada wants, Canada gets. It's not like you get a chance to vote on 99% of the laws in any country.

The U.S. doesn't want you to unlock your cell phone? You can't. The U.S. doesn't want to you fly aerial drones equipped with cameras? You can't. And if the U.S. decides terrorists use GPS, you won't be able to use that either.

In China, it is not illegal to use a GPS. It is illegal for foreigners to use GPS to create a map. Which makes more sense than some of the photo bans in the U.S. and Britain.

Thank you.
