Is that Big Brother in your pocket…?

I’ve started a new ‘Paranoia’ category. Don’t take any of this _too_ seriously.

I had just been thinking about the potential to turn our love of cell phones into a nice vector for the infiltration of monitoring technology into our homes when this story showed up:

There’s lots more data to be collected than geographic location, too. How do you know your cell phone isn’t streaming audio somewhere as it sits there ‘idle’ in your pocket right now?
