Be very careful where you store your sensitive data.

Sadly thats an old government trick. Since the US and UK aren't supposed to spy on their own citizens... the US spies on UK citizens, and the UK spies on US Citizens. They simply then 'exchange' their intellegence data... and they have what they want.

It was a major point of the Echelon Project. Also look up the UKUSA agreement if you're interested in this area.

It's a brave new world we are living in.

Sub_title: A few concepts come to mind re 3)
 

Old 'news' - various gleanings dependent on your take (I'd go for nothing new under the sun ~or~ an expected thing)

mechanical watches - hmm, once when I asked at a public library (a few years back) about the availability of Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation of A Clockwork Orange, I was advised it was only available if one expressly reserved it and thus arose a small feeling of being watched Rolling Eyes (not that my library card is any anonymity in itself). One of my first DvD purchases, btw. Cash Laughing

Verint: the American Company Helping Governments Spy on “Billions” of Communications
Quote:
Among Verint’s products are unremarkable security cameras and systems that enable call center managers to monitor their workers. But it also sells some of the world’s most sophisticated eavesdropping equipment, creating a line of spy tools designed to help governments and intelligence agencies snoop on communications across an entire country.

Verint sells what it calls “monitoring centers” that “enable the interception, monitoring, and analysis of target and mass communications over virtually any network.” These systems are designed to be integrated within a country’s communications infrastructure and, according to Verint’s website, are currently used in more than 75 nations.

The technology Verint designs doesn’t just target specific criminal groups or terrorists. It can be tailored to intercept the phone calls and emails of millions of everyday citizens and store them on vast databases for later analysis. Verint boasts in its marketing materials that its “Vantage” monitoring center enables “nationwide mass interception” and “efficiently collects, analyzes, and exposes threats from billions of communications.” And if that’s not enough to satisfy spy agencies’ thirst for intelligence, Verint has more to offer. The company says it can also help governments automatically identify people from the sound of their voice using speech identification software, intercept the cellular and satellite mobile phone communications of “mass populations over a wide area” using a covert portable device, and provide data-mining tools to build detailed profiles about criminals and other “negative influencers” in real time.

The National Security Agency has reportedly purchased Verint snooping equipment, as have authorities in Mexico. However, the use of such technology in the United States is a legally contentious issue. Mass monitoring of solely domestic calls and emails would be prohibited under the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unwarranted searches and seizures. [But the CIA or NSA can legally monitor anything an alien does, anywhere in the universe.] But a controversial clause in a 2008 amendment to the Foreign Intelligence and Surveillance Act means mining communications as they pass between the United States and countries of interest like Pakistan and Yemen can be deemed technically permissible. (Other countries, however, have few regulations in this area, if any at all. Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was able to get his hands on French mass surveillance gear in 2006, which was subsequently used domestically to indiscriminately track dissidents and other regime opponents.)

In my message i meant that a not young newspaper is the symbol of stability what is real thing in the kingdom of armies of colonizers. The kingdom is very big and old, and how many armies of colonizers - i simply don't know. I don't know the kingdom's name.
Often civilian personage has an opportunity to define the aggression. Good armed military specialist has an opportunity to define the espionage. Assumption: there are many very powerful and very quick nuclear explosions 24 hours a day, which is the act of agression, is the very noticeable product which is from the kingdom of armies of colonizers.
