Ash Moore, "Digital Effects: The Fourth Amendment and Computer Searches Warrants," 10 OKLA. J.L. & TECH. 67 (2014)

"This paper uses the physical computer and the Fourth Amendment to explore the larger concept of privacy rights in an increasingly digitized world. Part I traces the origin of the Fourth Amendment. Part II follows the Amendment’s development through its almost 300-year history. Part III explores how the Fourth Amendment and computers currently relate to one another. Part IV puts this paper’s discussion in a modern context and finally, Part V explains why physical computers deserve more protection than they currently receive because they now contain more “intimate details of the home” than any other object ever imagined."
