Shadowrun moments...

Every so often when technology catches up with Shadowrun, I have what I call a "Shadowrun Moment".  I shake my head in wonder that things that seemed purely sciencfictional 17 years ago are happening now.  Such as when I read last year that "there are more than 750,000 employees of security companies, which exceed the number of state and local police." (source)  Wikipedia has more information on Private Military Contractors.

raincoatVia Gizmodo - the future of fashion today! 

Gizmodo says: If you're worried about some thug trying to jack your iPod, this raincoat should give you some peace of mind. Not because it makes you look like a really big Matrix fan, but because it's bulletproof and stabproof. You can flaunt your fancy gadgets all you want, and if someone tries to jam a broken bottle into your sternum you can just laugh, laugh heartily right in their face. Well, until they stab you in the neck or something. The jacket won't protect your neck. Just keep that in mind.

The manufacturer's site, Spycatcher of Knightsbridge, has a wealth of gadgets, gizmos and armored vehicles.  Since all of the things are available now, you can use this site as a resource for your modern (and Shadowrun) games.

And cell phones! One of my favorite Shatner stories is when he gave a talk about the technology of Star Trek, and afterward went outside, flipped open his cell phone to make a call and realized what he'd just done...
