now at the time there were about 150 people in the store. when we came back as we walked to the doors i thought bloody hell...now we have to find the bloke who sold it too us and hope he is free to help us.
as we got to the doors someone whom worked there and we had not seen before or dealt with said "how you going...your back to set up you phone". my son and i looked at each other. it had been about 30 mins since we had left. i said to the bloke "how the hell do you know that....we havent seen you before". he just laughed and sought of fobbed it off and took us inside to set it up.
i checked and he did have an earpiece inside his ear. just goes to show...they are watching and listening to everything you say and do in there.
i decided to play on this a bit. he asked me if there was anything he could do for me and if i had an iphone, ipad or laptop. told him no...nothing apple. told him you may have the kids brainwashed into everything apple but i avoid like the plague anything to do with this mega company who can make items for probably $100 using slave chinese labour and sell it to the westerners for $1000.

Even when the computer is turned off
I don't see how that's technically feasible.
I don't see how that's technically feasible. The only juice outside of the main power source is the cmos battery to my knowledge. Are you saying the cmos gets tapped to run this chip...and mysteriously connects to the internet you need juice for the board to run..the nic...I just don't see this happening..sorry.

Even if you remove a harddrive or memory sticks from a computer with their new feature.....they can still boot up a hidden operating system they have embedded into chips. This new system can connect to networks even with your computer turned off. She's a 100% silent hidden core just made for them.
