i guess they're probably watching me take a dump in the toilet right now, texting this very message, while staring into my deep dark black eyes, touching my... Leg. Well damn. If they didn't have anything better to do with their life, then I should probably feel honored they're interested in me this much!

They've admitted in the past that they just end up sitting on the majority of it and being unable to make the connections they'd need to to actually find the majority of threats that they didn't already have clues to focus on. It seems more like the use of this whole system is to find dissidents and deal with them the most effective way possible; smear tactics and character assassinations.

In the mean time here's to hoping they don't have things that can break PGP and well done steganography.
Even if you were totally off base, and delusional for thinking it seems more like it's a tool to deal with dissidents.. Anyone with a brain can see that new anti-terror legislation makes it entirely possible to do such a thing to anyone, including political leaders, without legal recourse. These people don't even need to answer to Congress. Their convictions need not be proven in a court of law.

Before long it will be technologically feasible for them to conduct frequent, automated audio/video drop-ins to be stored indefinitely. The implications of that could be disastrous, given the fact that they operate without even having their actions subject to the judgement of Congress. Those smear tactics and character assassinations could begin from the day a future politician is old enough to own a cell phone. Before that politician ever even starts their career, it's conceivable that a small group of people within such a secret agency could pull up a lifetime of material to stifle them.

Conflicting interests could easily be enough reason for such a thing, An NSA like we have now would certainly oppose a politician like Rand Paul because that type of politician could end up dissolving nearly the entire agency. After a few generations, if they continue on this course, it seems quite likely that they could entirely manipulate public perception of such opponents.

It's not a comfortable thought.

If your tracfone is an android, likely won't be any different.

I don't think you got the joke.

I am never getting a smartphone for this very reason. How could this ever impact me though right? Not like I'm actually being spied on.

Maybe. But the anxiety and paranoia you get when you think you're being watched, it's the same for me with this stuff. I don't actually think I'm being watched. Just the fact that it's POSSIBLE is enough for me.

The only "smartphone" I would consider is one with an x86 processor that connects to Wifi only.

I'll wear a backpack with a massive 30dBi gain 2w powered antenna inside for range so I can talk while connected to wifi hotspots... (This last bit is actually a joke.... maybe).

At this point I think Snowden is just making up clickbait crap because he's lonely and wants the attention he believes he deserves.

Does anything in the hundreds of thousands of classified documents he released back up his statements? lol

I read comments about whole story behind Snowden...
I only can say that real true normal people will never know and what really happen.
Are you sure that this is not maybe game of NSA. It's enough to contact some people in Russia who maybe even didn't had contact with base years because want to stay uncovered.
We will never know true or we will never know whole true. Everything could be speculations. Now he want to back in USA, to bring new from agents in Russia.
I only want to say that I'm on side of US government. Maybe is whole story farce and theater for people hungry of conspiracy theories.
We know so little and we swallow everything what they throw us everybody make own story exactly what governments plan. Hundred stories and any of them is far from real true.
I read he want to back, some people say because families, US government blackmail him... Like he didn't know that before he decide to become traitor. But maybe is real patriot.
One thing is sure Moscow is not naive and they have plan for any scenario. If he really done what news say than Moscow ask some important information to allow him to live in Russia.
They didn't leave man who know lot about American System to sit there as tourist and use benefits of Russian citizens just like that.
This for smart phones I don't believe is exactly as he describe, some way to listen your calls and messages exist and to track you, but not as he say.
