Law-enforcement officials in the U.S. are expanding the use of tools routinely used by computer hackers to gather information on suspects, bringing the criminal wiretap into the cyber age.

Here we go again ATS. Now we have to watch what we say. I've been wondering what they were planning to do with all the permissions that go along with updated smart phones and tablets. In case you were unaware, when you update your phone or apps on it the fine print state that they can turn on microphone or video without your consent. So I guess in someone's eyes this would be legal, not mine.

Before anyone jumps down my throat, I'm not telling you what to do, just be aware of what can happen and plan accordingly.

MOTF!

This system uses your phone to listen to you. Nothing to do with posting or the internet at all. I'm sure I could come up with some pretty outlandish stories if I knew they were listening to me. A story with a unicorn.

MOTF!
