ITS NOT JUST VERIZON. All cell phone company's spy on you even when your phone is off, the Govt has told us this. Xbox kenetic is a device for your a Xbox gaming station. It records your movement and matches it to the game play on the tv screen. Xbox kenetic is able to track your BIOMETRICS. (the next phase of this tech) Biometrics are like a body finger print. Its a mathematical calculation of various body parts. How far your eyes are apart, how large they are, where your nose and your mouth is on your face ect.... Now imagine walking down a street, a billboard scans your biometrics and advertizes to you based on a DATA base they have on you and guess what YOU HAVE NO CHOICE!!! They have all ready started the data base on every one of us. They store TRILLIONS (probably more) of gigs worth of information. As soon as I hit reply (possibly even before) this post is going in my file. It goes much further then this. I am not going to post any more because I might traumatize some of you. Its really sickening how deep this really goes. Just imagine the power one would hold after unlocking the secrets of how the brain works.

As if a person might not be concerned enough about privacy and surveillance, the improvements to electronic spying tech and the drop in price for digital storage will soon allow governments to hoover up all data in the here-and-now but execute retroactive surveillance.
Now picture this, a city with a population of 12 million which has about 500,000 video cameras, one video cam for every 24 people. By 2020, the declining costs for digital storage will make it possible to store all of that video acquired, in high resolution, for about a quarter per person.
The consequences of the "coming era of ubiquitous surveillance" to countries with a "complete absence of privacy considerations" will affect all of us.
For the past several months I have been diligently, and with Law Enforcement approval, researching several 'exotic modulation' audio surveillance devices that have been seen in Europe and are now in North America. The devices included high quality Ultrasonic, inductive and light modulated listening devices. Some of the results were stunning, and the standard sweep tools most of us buy in North America simply can't detect them. For example, there is one modified LED bulb that will send audio over 300 meters, a nasty ultrasonic audio implant that sends room audio via fortuitous audio pathways, and a kit that allows the attacker to modify any color LED light found in a common appliance and turn it into an audio transmitter. The last and most important device for those of us who work with high threat levels is the inductive device. It literally goes through anything and it is very scary. Qualified sweepers can view these new and significant devices at www.waypointcs.ca in the government and LEO restricted area.
At this time of year when many of us are surrounded by an inordinate amount of LED bulbs via holiday decorations, the idea of Christmas lights spying on anyone by potentially "listening" for audio seemed extra creepy
Yes, Virginia, even the LED lights might be 'listening'
Basically, when you buy or rent something like a movie, you’ll only be granted a “license” for a certain number of people to watch it. If Kinect detects more people in the room than you had a licence for, it can stop the movie, and even charge you extra. So if Microsoft has its way, you won’t just be renting movies any more. You’ll have to decide how many people are watching, and no doubt pay more. And if one extra person turns up to your movie night? Link 2
Candid camera takes on creepy, voyeuristic dimensions thanks to a new patent filed by Verizon. Straight out of "1984," the company wants use a new kind of DVR that would go on top of your TV and allow the company (via a camera and mic inside the box) to see and hear what is going on in the room.
