Yeah, yeah. We all know this, right?!

I have understood this for a while- that my phone could be used to listen in on me. Not that I think I’m of particular interest, but it’s possible for this to be done. I’ve had my share of ads, or “suggestions” pop up on my social accounts that coincided with recent conversations, so I know that it’s being used for marketing.

However, until now- as I discussed some political news with my husband and felt like I should physically write my thoughts on paper and pass it to him, I hadn’t been terribly concerned about it.

Maybe I’m late to the game. Maybe I’m an idiot. Maybe I’m paranoid. Maybe I’m woke. I don’t know. But a small part of me feels crushed.

too little too late.

your tv is listening.

your microwave it's suspect.

the power meter outside can't be trusted.


we have already lost, and so few even suspect there might be a problem.


next year, ask for an itemized receipt on your taxes.

If you want to have a private conversation, unplug the microwave, put your phones and tablets in it. Then get naked in the hot tub with music playing loud. A glass of wine helps to.

I have an old dial phone in my office. It's not plugged into anything it's an antique but it's still wired. I have a land line . I might just plug that one in.

Security cam,toasters and coffee pots manufactured in China have been found to have bugs in them. Most of the time the information they gather is inconsequential. However every staff room has a coffee pot, military bases,the pentagon,giant financial firms,engineering firms etc. Now some of the discussion that happens in those break rooms might be highly interesting to the right party.

that land line goes through multiple datacenters.
your analog line is likely digitized at the first node, and a copy recorded and analyzed for key words- kept on hand by the NSA for several years just in case.

Funny you use the word “comrade”- because it touches on the discussion I was having that I felt a need to stop verbalizing. Barely- but it made me chuckle!

When someone types to You "Google™ is Your friend..." This person is lying to You; I wouldn't trust them.

Bing™ the following: Mark Zuckerberg's private computer w/camera and audio taped over... Now why would Agent Zuckerberg do that if 'they' weren't listening? Now You could opine that You don't live the life that Agent Zuckerberg lives but that isn't the point. Where did You forego Your 4th Amendment Rights? Now 'they' figure if You don't care about the 4th Amendment, why should You care about the 2nd or 1st?

Remember the 'Obama Phone'? Which was really brought up by Reagan? All those folks 'approved' the NSA™ listening to the calls as that was mentioned in the 'Contract' Most sign away their rights w/out reading the 'fine print' over at farcebook™ these are known as 'Terms Of Use Agreement'...

Yes, We remember when You were typing 'for' HRC and 'against' Herr Drumpf, how dare You? hahahaha

Notice yet that they ALL are crooked?

If youre a business person you can bet their recording your ideas, instincts, methods, plans, sources, contacts... all for the AI to study... your trade secrets.



Was one of the first warnings I put out soon after they started becoming common and I was finally exposed to one and saw it doing text to speech on screen, everything we were saying standing next to it, knowing Google God archives anything and everything they manage to record... FOREVER.

Swear to god, if I hear/read "woke" and "shook" out of another grown-ass adult, I'm going to have to start clocking people. No offense to the OP, but holy s# those are annoying, pretentious hipster terms if ever there were any.

Lol, come on, Bing is just as bad. Micro$oft owns Bing.

Regardless, always assume everything is recorded, no matter how "unplugged" from tech you think you are -- listening devices are very tiny now. And very well disguised.

I’m not a business person- stay at home parent. I have nothing to offer anything eavesdropping.

It’s still creepy.

Well.... it was used rather tongue in cheek. And while I largely feel the same- I have had to accept that language evolves. No matter how much I am annoyed by the bastardization of the written and spoken word, change is inevitable.

Sorry I was nails on a chalkboard to your internet ears.

I know that for a fact. On alternate days I had a laptop and dual boot PC attached to a wifi-router. When I came in to work each day, a contractor at my workplace would be chatting to my cubicle neighbor about the exact things that were on my screen. Only stopped when I kept all my home projects on a separate system.

I suspect something is funny because I can't even get wireshark to record the traffic sent from my smart TV to the wifi-router even when the ethernet ports are set to promiscuous mode.
