    Trust me. You`ve never been to a good party until you`ve been to one that makes you leave your phone at the door. ;)

    I hope everyone knows, by now, that the government can and has activated one-way speakerphone and GMS capabilities on smartphones without the owners prior knowledge or consent. That`s right, they can follow you and listen in to what you say at anytime day and night. That`s not paranoia, that`s the brutal truth.

    @CrakrJak
    Truth or not, I have nothing to be ashamed of. You can prattle on about big brother and all that but unless it actually happens, meh. They can listen to me talk about what to get at the grocery store and watch me go back and forth between work, home and school.

    @jtreb: "HOMO-smack"? That`s the best you have? Really? It`s so... 1993 of you...
    (not to mention BIGOTED!)
    HEAVEN forbid you should admit @CrakrJak is CORRECT! Much easier to insult, slander and shove your own head up your own arse, eh? F-tard...

    YES the "powers that be" can indeed listen to YOU through your cellphone without your concent! Unless you take the battery out...

    Hey @CrakrJak: I thought it was us righties who "hates faggots". Yet it`s lib-tards like @jtreb who use alleged homosexuality as an insult?

    Clearly, we need to go get a MS in Philosophy to understand this... perhap "wombyn`s Studies"??? (deliberate lower-case "w"...)

    This big brother poo is always funny, They may have the technical capability but they don`thave the man power to monitor every citizen so will need to restrict it to people who they have a strong suspicion are the bad guys. Take CCTV in the UK, the usually don`t get used to full effect until there is a very serious crime and then the police will put the man hours into following a suspect across multiple camera feeds, till they know who they are and catch them.

    @5cats

    "YES the "powers that be" can indeed listen to YOU through your cellphone without your concent! Unless you take the battery out..."

    this was the area of intelligence i worked in the military. Just because something is possible doesn`t mean it`s happening to you.

    can you imagin the manpower needed... even with initial computer filtering... to monitor everyone`s phone?

    It doesn`t happen... not because the government doesn`t want it to happen... just just couldn`t pay for it to happen - so it`s a lot more targeted than just randomly listening out for keywords across a whole network. No doubt the conspiracy theorists will be upset that 99.99% of them don`t even warrant a file opening on them, no matter how much they`d love the government to be targetting them, but that`s the reality of it.

    Bakcagain: With today`s computers they don`t need more manpower. With voice translation and face mapping software the computers themselves perform the initial searching and save those recordings for human interpretation.

    Homeland security has secured rooms of super computers distributed among the various telecommunication company nodes. They are connected right into the trunk line and the companies themselves have no access to those monitored rooms.

    @CrakrJak read Listypoos comment. The amount of saved recordings would still be too large if done to the entire nation. To get monitored you have to have been selected on risk criteria. The gov. does not want to read through all your mail and phone messages hearing you complain about social welfare leeches on society.... They couldn`t pay enough people to do that for every right wing nut.

    Yes there is advanced facial mapping and translation software. It still doesn`t mean the police/gov needs to get all the CCTV footage from various feeds and tie them into correct time with varying qualities of feed. One camera they may have a decent face shot the next five their following a blurry image of clothes. Computers are not advanced enough yet to monitor the entire population of the UK let alone the USA. They need to be targeted. And then anything without a court order would be inadmissible and pointless anyway.
    Your paranoia is as bad as the Truthers.

    Bakcagain: They don`t save everything, true. The software looks for keywords and phrases. The face recognition software looks for certain faces. Once tagged and reviewed though, they may decide to investigate further.

    If you start hearing mysterious clicks you might be being monitored, just saying.

    @CrakrJak it`s all done electronically and atthe source you won`t hear clicks, shows your ignorance of the subject. Unless you`re hanging around with questionable people or planning to blow up the democrat offices or some other terror plot. I would bet all my worldly possessions you`re not being monitored by the federal gov in the way you think and have nothing to fear about.

    The stores you have loyalty cards with will know more about you then the gov.
