We said when we reported that companies like Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook had been named as part of the NSA's PRISM data collection program that we would be hearing more soon enough. We didn't expect how soon though. As we were writing that story, the Wall Street Journal reported that the NSA's call logging extends beyond Verizon to cover AT&T and Sprint as well...

Its news like this that make me wish I could unplug from the whole system, but its hard nowadays. Nothing is safe. I know there is a need to track things like this for the sake of national security, but I have issues with it. Do I have anything to hide, no. But am I bothered that big brother is watching us all, yes.

You can stay online and TRY to be safe. Encrypt your email, use proxies, etc. Although that probably could make you look more like a threat because one would wonder what you were sending that was so secrative. Unplugging this day in time is going to be difficult. Everyone is so used to being connected. I have mixed feelings on the logging stuff and that bleeds over to how the press deals with information too. Its a big can of worms I guess. This isnt the first ive heard about major carriers giving up data to the feds though.

This is the epic part of US govt. Spying and running over any human rights saying that they are protecting and goes forward to raise war on innocent people. But every Americans should remember they are doing these crimes with your own money. Dont you guys think this should be stopped?

Now I see the reason behind the deliberate destruction of Nokia's Symbian, MeeGo, and Meltemi OS. Because the US NSA wants MONOPOLY of data from users that would otherwise become impossible to control for companies (like Nokia) that are headquartered outside the US.
