wee: Wait until people find out they can turn on the camera and microphone remotely, too.
HeadbangerSmurf: How the hell do you think 911 calls are tracked so they can find you when you call?
Hermione_Granger: Is there anyone who doesn't know that the first thing you do is ditch your cell phone and don't even think about calling any of your contacts? Seriously.
Sgygus: Politics change over time. What happens when we get tricked into voting some evil bastard into office?
KeatingFive: Eventually a Republican will be President again, and all of this surveillance will be doubled, but it will be OK.
Boloxor the Insipid: revrendjim: Great Janitor: It's a sad day when there is a news article confirming that the U.S. government is using our cell phones to spy on us 24/7, and the response from the population is "yeah, we know."Jesus, the article says that it is technically possible to use your phone to track you and you see this as confirmation that they are spying on you 24/7. Get some help. Seriously. There are medications that can significantly reduce paranoid delusions. Talk to your doctor.Too many in this thread don't actually comprehend. THEY ARE RECORDING YOUR META-DATA RIGHT NOW (location is meta data) and it is SAVED FOREVER. They don't have to have you in mind or know who you are when they do it, because it is being done 100% of the time for EVERYONE and this information can be searched like google.Snowden showed that this information can be accessed by any number of people who have no legal reason to do so.Unscrupulous persons can use this information to OWN YOU.
Hollie Maea: vudukungfu: They know what porn you loveAgain, no one finds your vanilla porn to be the least bit interesting or notable. You have to be into some pretty sick shiat to get onto some poor bureaucrat's radar. Remember, there are 300 million Americans and you are competing with the guy who gets off watching clowns mung with partial-birth aborted fetuses. Your secret folder of transformer porn isn't nearly as exotic as you imagine. Honestly, if your porn is weird enough to be noticed, probably someone SHOULD keep an eye on you.
queezyweezel: I was just ranting about this on Facebook......
olddinosaur: Mija: Captain Steroid: This isn't news.Alex Jones talked about this years ago.Yeah, and at the time everyone denounced him as a crackpot.Funny how times change.
caddisfly: LoneCraneFullMoon: I already leave my phone at home when I'm out committing crimes for this very reason.Yeah. Let's leave our phones at home and go get sushi and not pay!
