    NSA Spying Through Angry Birds & Google Maps

    So much for our 4th amendment. Are we in the year 2014 or 1984?

    NSA spying through Angry Birds, Google Maps, leaked documents reportedly reveal | Fox News

    The NSA and its British counterpart are tapping popular smartphone apps such as Angry Birds to peek into the tremendous amounts of very personal data those bits of software collect -- including age, location, sex and even sexual preferences, according to new reports from the New York Times and The Guardian.

    If you're wasting time on Angry Birds, you need to be watched.

    I like Angry Birds. Kinda addicted to it
    Carry means carry. That means all of the time. If you don't, you're just kidding yourself and opening up options for someone to take you down.

    I don't play "Angry Birds" I had wanted to get a smart phone with a map app. I don't think too many people care where I'm at.

    I'm easy to find, I am either at home or work. They already know that. If they have someone watching me, they're sleeping on the job.

    I don't know what all that stuff is (birds and apples) but who are these people looking for?

    People that need to be watched, of course!

    As a network engineer and software engineer, I can tell you without a doubt that if you use ANYTHING that accesses the internet, you can be tracked. Does that mean the government knows what you are doing? Not really. Why? Because you are lost in the mountains of data. Unless the government has a reason to be tracking you specifically, your information is just another drop in the ocean of data.

    The ONLY real reason that we should care about this is that it is a violation of the Constitution and our 4th Amendment rights, not because the government is really spying on you.

    I've watched on Google Maps my childhood neighborhood go from many homes to none as the city turned it into a parking lot. Wonder what the NSA thinks I'm doing with that.

    I wouldn't doubt that the NSA is watching this and many other gun related sites and forums.

    I use Tapatalk to access this website in order to make it easier for the NSA to receive my uploaded pictures. :)

    I am amazed at how people just download all kinds of apps without reading the "permissions" they have to give to use them.

    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.
