Parts of our judicial system are just not up to the task of dealing with modern technology. Witness the awesomeness of what Massachusetts police based a search on - from the EFF:
Some of the supposedly suspicious activities listed in support of the search warrant application include: the student being seen with "unknown laptop computers," which he "says" he was fixing for other students; the student uses multiple names to log on to his computer; and the student uses two different operating systems, including one that is not the "regular B.C. operating system" but instead has "a black screen with white font which he uses prompt commands on."
I'm not sure the judge who issued that warrant has made it up to the AOL era, much less this century...
