pretty much, if you have something to hide (everyone has something they dont want others to know legal or not) you are screwed and even if you think you have nothing to hide (which you definitely do have) you are also screwed.

im not fond if having someone's (and sometimes more then one) arm elbow deep up my crap hole trying to find out what i had for lunch regardless if i have been having a diet of fast food or organic salad

Hey...
Hey guys, if you are not doing anything wrong, then there is nothing to worry about. Right?

Why would I believe they haven't already achieved this?

What's the date on this "leaked memo"? They can create an invisible OS running inside your HD firmware, but they couldn't do this? But they can already hack your phone and turn on the camera or microphone.

At this point, I think the best thing to assume with the NSA is that if it sounds technologically possible, they've probably already done it.

You have to admit it's comical in a sense, but if we start talking in terms of reality then many people will point their fingers at our tin foil hats. Considering the types of man in the middle attacks they've done in the past, I can't see the app store being the grey area for both sides.

disposable phones, fake id's..... why bother, it sounds much like DRM software but they don't really hold the property rights, never have and remain just a broken dream like in all capitalist nations.

All of them, switch to CyanogenMod!

 

At-least we will know what is running on our phones when we use CM. We can debug and monitor the traffic to see what's going on!

ITT: NSA is doing its job pretty damn well and exactly what we pay them for.

The NSA is just a nuclear weapon of a different form. So long as it is on your government's side, be happy. Unless anyone wants to cite a single case in the 30+ years of mass data collection and internet surveillance where this power was abused in any substantial way.

lol countless cases where NSA employees spied on their exgirlfriends and so on. i rather ask you, since you yourself mentioned 30+ years of mass data collection and internet surveillance, where this power prevented terrorist attacks? like lets say 911? cause there are government statements, that all this surveillance had nearly zero effect.
so in end its just another bridge to nowhere, so some politicians can get their bribe ehm lobbying money while tax payers are being defrauded for billions. its kinda cute how you call bribes lobying as long as you put list of your bribes on a website xD

so yeah, an old eastern European joke comes to mind. everything that communists told us about communism was a lie, but everything they told us about capitalism was truth.

thing is, here in eastern europe people learned to read between the lines, so now after decades of "freedom" its just hillarious that the people on other side of the wall are getting screwed in same way as we were, but they are just happy indoctrinated sheep, who actually like being screwed tongue.gif

kinda funny cause if it was russians doing this, everyone and their grandma would be on the barricades "what about truth, what about freedom", but when the "truth patented" people use it, its supposedly for everyones safety lol

You also rarely hear any corporation complain about this either. So it's to be wondered if Apple or other app stores have either been targeted or infiltrated. Or if there is some amount of compliance.

And yeah, all of this crap is mostly hysterics. I agree that it's a violation of my right to privacy and the NSA should get spanked badly, but on the other hand, I'm not too concerned with how I can be politically influenced or blackmailed by my late night Dominos phone orders or my phone's call history.
