User Input: Where Does He Get Those Wonderful Toys?

One of the characteristics of the spy game, both real and fictional, that has captured the public’s imagination is the technology that goes into the gathering of intelligence. Whether it’s the fictional gadgetry of the James Bond realm, or the real-life “can you believe they built that” gadgets that actually served their respective nations in the Cold War, the intelligence game is on the cutting edge of technology.
The part that’s really amazing, however, is when you look back on the spy technology ten years later, twenty years later, thirty years later. So many of the gadgets that had us gobsmacked back then have become commonplace. Think about it; remember when James Bond used a tracking device in Goldfinger that transmitted his position to a monitor in the dashboard of another agent’s car? That was pretty wild stuff at the time. But on my drive home the other day, I did the same thing on my phone, using Waze. And I got updates on where the police were hiding along the highway I was driving.
What is the best example of a piece of spy technology that is commonplace today?
