So a post over at Tam’s place got me thinking. Specifically, the link to the cameras and microphones on buses, and the link that Tam placed in the comments about what the Feds can get without a warrant. There is even scarier technology than that. For example, there is this software that allows a person to listen in on calls, and even activate “environmental listening” where the phone is used as a “bug” that allows a person to remotely activate your cell phone’s microphone in order to listen in on whatever is happening in the room- all without the knowledge of the cell phone’s owner.

You would be foolish indeed if you believed that the police have not been exploiting this capability. The government doesn’t need to bug your house, you are doing it for them.
