What are you doing right now? Yeah, you! Besides reading this post, what are you doing right now? What other windows do you have open on your computer? What television shows are you watching and who have you talked to on the phone, in the last hour, day? Where did you drive to, today? What food did you buy at the grocery store and what medications do you take? Do you order them online, pay for them by credit card phone apps, claim them on your insurance? Would you be doing all that, if you knew you were being watched? If someone else had access to your movements, habits, private moments, would you still do them? That’s a question we all must ask ourselves, as BIG BROTHER has become a reality, and can no longer be dismissed or ignored.
By now, most folks know the NSA has been collecting and storing your cell phone activity, but, as far as we know, they aren’t listening to the content of our calls. Well, the FBI has taken that a step farther, and while there some are questioning, there doesn’t seem to be much outrage over it.

These cell-site simulators, otherwise known as stingrays, can capture the identity and locations of your cell phone as well as intercept texts and calls. Really! That sounds like content capture to me.
