And you, as we all know, can tape up your computer's camera and mic if you really want to...

Smartphones are a much bigger problem: they can be set up – by your average Joe – to audio and video eavesdrop on everything that's happening around them and track its location. In realtime!
But taping up your smartphone's camera and mic almost bricks them, so that is no solution...

Still enjoy carrying your smartphone everywhere?

smartphones really don't scare me. If I were to be planning something illegal, I would just leave it home. It is the big plans for implanted chips that really pisses me off. It is not so much that I am looking to break laws, it is that I am not a cow. Can't speak for everyone else, but i am better than cattle.

They ain't getting shit from my crapphone. Well, they could, but it would be either a.garbled nonsense b.fuzzy shots or c.both. 'Yay' for crapphones.

Rob Brydon does a good impression of what the gov would hear:

RE: exactily at what poiint is your tv a computer
When I was growing up my dad had a Radio Scanner because he liked listening to the pilots and Radio Tower at an airport not too close to us. (it might have been Donnington)

He had a book from the library that showed the frequencies. You could listen to the rescue services (police,ambulance, fire etc) and they picked up mobile phones as well, anything that was used in those range of frequencies.

I wonder if you can still get them today Consider

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

-Bemore.

The authorities don't agree with you.

Tim Cook is developing the iBrain as we speak.

Actually, he's simply taking over the plans that the late Jobs devised before he died.
