smart meters were all the rage in conspiracy circles some years ago.. maybe like 3 years?? Can't recall when.
They transmit data to the power company instead of somone coming to look at a counter on the side of your house.. part of the uproar was that it could possibly be reading everything you are using rather than a running total mashed together...
The other part and why op had a faraday cage on his/her smart meter was to block its emission of microwaves.. Many people were worried about it on the same level as microchips implanted in the skin with rfid....
I don't know of anyone who's measured the signals coming off for strength and frequency of transmission, but I remember that being the conspiracy...
and Im holdimg a cellphone typing... GPS and all the rest..
Its bluetooth and microwave tower and wifi routering all at the same time.
but at least its spying on my voice and my calls and texts at the NSA as well. Thank god all those aps can steal my data as well.. At least Im not alone..
Somone is listening.. And that makes me feel warm, like a well used pair of pants..
