Listening in to private conversations over an electronic connection is wire tapping and illegal.

Did you complain to the admins?

Opps.

this is the price we will pay to frolic on the web.


If you want to leave google out of the loop you can use startpage .

Startpage returns google results without directly linking your ip because it uses a proxy server in the Netherlands.

When you get your results you can view the pages with Ixquick Proxy by clicking on that option

also they are planning on using mobile phones as electronic wallets so everything about you including your email, location data and contacts will be easily available at the same touch of a button.

electronic RF implants anyone? there are already trials.

If we dont stop buying into these technologies we will end up in a situation where we are required to have them and not having them would make life very difficult. problem is they dont want you knowing what they are doing...softly softly catch the monkey!

stop using google, apple, facebook or any other corporation or service that thinks your privacy is their property to be sold to the highest bidder.

I made a few "not normal" purchases once and the credit card company stopped my card.

It was done in the name of my "security".

But its obvious that they track your purchase history.

I was kind of thankful and disturbed at the same time



Similar thing for me but instead of freezing my card my bank phoned me. Which was good as I was two days away from heading to the U.S, I was buying up because you get the tax you paid put back on your credit card at the airport if you have the receipt and you bought the items within a few days of heading overseas, at least for sport gear anyway and you can carry it on the plane, and it would have been a pain to have my card frozen while over seas and the lady said that had the transaction taken place over seas they would have frozen it if they hadn't known I was overseas. So I guess we do need some kind of vigilance to reduce crime but I think that no body other than your bank should have access to that info.

You can stitch it into the hat lining

Orwell was not that much off the mark when he wrote about camera's in tv sets.

I have no loyality cards, pay by cash, turn my mobile(cell) phone off when not travelling alone, have opted out of the NHS data base. No credit card.

You have to wonder why TPTB want all this info on us, what use is it to them, only one thing comes to my mind...control....those in power want complete control of us...

What is worse is that modern technology is encouraging users to voluntarily supply their data. Social networking sites that encourage users to "check in" to places, etc. It's become the trend to lead a very transparent life, so in a lot of cases such collection of data is considered completely normal, and most people do not even think twice about happily handing over the information on their whereabouts and general activities.

It's an exploitation of the psychological tendency to prefer immediate gain over long term satisfaction. In this case the instant gratification is when the person communicating their data is greeted by responses from friends. People's social behaviour has become so enmeshed with technological networking that transmitting data has become a crucial part of social interaction.

I recall visiting my elderly Mother in hospital in the UK whilst she was seriously ill.

I was frustrated that the Doctors and nurses didn't seem to be telling me everything about her condition.

In the corridor I bumped into a cleaner who recognized me. She said she was the mother of my brothers ex girlfriend from school. (20+ Years previously).

I told her of my frustration and 1hour later she came back and gave me the full medical update of my Mothers condition.
I was so shocked, how could she access this....A cleaner after all.

I did not complain as I know she was only trying to help but seriously our data is not secure.

I have no cell, no laptop, no credit cards... but I know 'they' could trace me in an instant anyway. It's useless to fight against it.

The besy way is to fight from within.

That is a breathtaking breech of patient confidentiality, gross missconduct, and a criminal offence.

I know she was trying to do you a favour, but how many other "favours" by un-authorised people have been made?

In the DM paper sheets a couple of months ago , there was a story about a man who had installed a security system on his laptop whereby he could remotely turn the system on to access his webcam and mic.
His laptop was stolen , and he immediately had an id on the person who pinched it . He was watching and listening to him use it, right up close . Beleive it or not , when he informed the police , they did nothing about it .

It was only when he set up a growingly popular blog entitled "This man stole my laptop > let's watch him" that the police took any action at all . Hence the newspaper article .

Good Find. S&F

Stuff like this is quite shocking. I knew that there was some of this going on, but never to this scale. I'm guessing they pulled the info from a lot of sources an dpieced it together chronologically to create a picture of her day. All TPTB need now, if they don't already have it, is a piece of software to do that for them.

Combine that with some AI and some knowledge in trend prediction and they can almost know what you are likely to be doing before you do.

Worrying to say the least. Peace

Just download Google Earth and you can see plain as day how technology in the future will allow Big Brother to know everything that is going on.All those transactions and everything you type on computers are stored into databases.Wait until RFID technology takes off into the public and becomes a global market.

I have seen an example of that on this site today with a supposed astrologist asking for peoples date of birth and lication on the promise of being told of their "soul mate"

How do they even know that this person is not just collating info on site members?

We dont!
