Update: Contributing editor Robert just finished upgrading his AT&T Tilt while on his way to Hawaii for vacation (what dedication!). He is very impressed with the multiple level zoom; the granularity of the zoom apparently is very good. We'll wait for Robert to provide an in depth review once he's spent more time with it.

How do you conduct a reverse license plate owner lookup? I have to know whether there is any type of way you can enter in a license plate number on the web and see the full name of the individual if it is associated with or perhaps the address of that individual. Can anyone help me to solve this? It's an The state of illinois license plate with S at the end of it. Please e-mail me if you can perform a search or post if you know how you can do a absolutely free one. Thanks a lot.
