If I can look into your home with my webcam (which I can), then you can look into mine. Make sense?

I don't think you understood my point.

Just thought i would add my 2 cents, back in 2006 Apple came out with the all seeing screen. It gives them the ability to take pictures from your computer screen. Given that this was in 2006, and if you guys know some things about computers which I'm sure you all do, than you know that in 6 years they could easily come up with a screen that could constantly monitor your every move.

Apple's all-seeing screen We could soon see a new kind of display screen from computer maker Apple - one that simultaneously takes pictures while showing images. The clever idea is to insert thousands of microscopic image sensors in-between the liquid crystal display cells in the screen. Each sensor captures its own small image, but software stitches these together to create a single, larger picture.

Apple's all seeing eye.

Hope this wasn't already talked about on ATS!

Much love

They won't. You will be asked to report somewheres away from your secure location.

Thats what I'm talking about. We can't see the forest for the trees. Thanks for the link.

Let's see:

No web cam.
I have a mic, but it's only plugged in when I need it.
I don't own a damn cell phone.
No GPS in my car (but it squeaks so bad, they'd track me that way).

I've shopped at Amazon, but the only thing that would tell them is that I like SciFi and Popcorn.

My Google search history? They'd wonder if I was a conspiracy nut.
I'm on ATS, so that would confirm that I'm a conspiracy nut (at least in their eyes).

Mostly though, they'd find me a very boring person to watch or monitor, hehehehe.

That's right, and this forum right here is a perfect example.

You know... this thread clearly shows the thin line between conspiracy theory and delusional thinking...

Really you dont have to run to the hills... and no, the germans are not coming. You can now come out of hiding or... from seclusion or whatever paranoid hermits call it.

But I gotta admit this is pretty funny to read... its almost as fun as a discovery show (or national geographic - cant remember) called "preppers". Now those guys take the cake on being utter loons.

I guess ATS has had that effect on me, over the years.

Honestly,if anyone were to hack into my webcam to watch, they would be bored to tears within minutes....But...I still cover it up... Again...Just in case.

Me too DirtyLiberalHippie I have a smiley face blue sticker over my webcam and only take it off to talk on it... I have been having some type of sticker or tape on there for like 4 years and when I had a stationary webcam I had it turned around facing the wall. Guess us paranoid ATS'ers have a certain ability to see the evil potential beforehand.

If this is talking about what it seems it is. Then this isn't new news at all, it's been a while since the government had the capabilities to track everyone every movement. If its on the internet, you can guarantee they know about it too. Granted no one likes this, but again, it has no serious harm. It probably has more good than bad in this. Although, one slight issue, deleting your history no longer has any use

You aren't the only one
the only time I ever had mine facing me, was when I was actually using it with friends. On my laptop on the other hand, I have weak black tape over it. Works just as well

So always play distasteful porn and music? Tell us something we didn't know... like what equations are being used in the population analysis and why said equations have glaring flaws.

Interesting theory. Those technologies are an imaginatively subtle way of persuading people to enjoy surveillance of ones person. These types of surveillance could be in effect now.

I would just like to add that the door swings both ways with this technology. If the plebeians became sufficiently annoyed they could wreck havoc guerrilla style. I hope both sides use these powers reasonably and fairly.

People keep telling me "If you are not a criminal or terrorist, you have nothing to fear". I agree with that statement in our current governmental form, but History has shown how rapidly governments can change in emergency situations. Regardless of whether Googles motto is "Dont be evil", if the overall situation changes then all the tools for total surveillance are already in place and the populace habituated.

The National Security Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers broke ground today on a $1.2 billion data center at Camp W.G. Williams National Guard Post here.

The first page of that thread contains enough information to validate your theory of a huge data processing center, run by the NSA, a branch of the all powerful DHS.

You mean the NSA that has signed contracts of cooperation with Google?

You lot are far too boring to watch anyway.

Being able to spy on anyone means being able to control anyone. Most people may be "boring" or as docile as Big Brothers want them, but those who are not can be tracked, monitored and followed. Privacy is a part of what makes someone an individual instead of part of the hive-mind collective.

Ive noticed how full-scale invasion of privacy is considered amusing by contemporary thought.

What about our wonderful tech-toys, the smartphones!

Camera/s, microphones, GPS, contacts list, e-mail and IM listings, links to Faceborg & social media, stored activity register. Always at hand, always on, totally wireless.

Fun fun fun for the surveillance ones.

The smartphone/i-phone is the ultimate surveillance tool.

Awesome post. That keyword collection alone will have attracted certain "monitoring people" like flies.
