Re: Lots of equipment can have surveillance ability
Well anything that is connected to the internet or can be connected wierlesly can be hacked you don't even need the cia to do it. They can be manipulated and or any information they gather can be stolen.

Re: Lots of equipment can have surveillance ability
But, if Trump security is compromised through their own choice of equipment that is hardly an indication that Obama has done anything wrong.

Re: Lots of equipment can have surveillance ability
I keep thinking of the people who stagger out to the kitchen in the middle of the night completely naked, to get a snack out of the refrigerator that has had a video device activated.

Re: Lots of equipment can have surveillance ability
Anyone wants to look at my naked body, more power tot hem.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Lots of equipment can have surveillance ability
LOL im not that shy to be worried about that im naked in saunas with other people all the time. But i get it.

But thats still kind of beningn to what dangeres such technologies actually pose, a few months ago a toy got recaled because it got hacked, pedos could tell children what to do trough the toy and film them doing it trough the camera in the toy.

But with some common sense you can still be pretty safe and still enjoy the comforts these new technologies bring. A good firewall, a good anti virus and anti malware program should keep you safe. Most hackers use keyloggers to get your passwords, dont use common or easy to guess paswords, and have different passwords for diferent things.

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King

I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. Thomas Jefferson

Seems to me if its clear that certain things that require ancient dates couldn't possibly be true, we are on our way to throwing out all those ancient dates on the basis of the actual evidence. -- Faith

Some of us are worried about just how much damage he will do in his last couple of weeks as president, to make it easier for the NY Times and Washington post to try to destroy Trump's presidency. -- marc9000

Yeah, guys don't mind being caught naked but who wants to be photographed surreptitiously in private? That's creepy.

He-he-he. Webcams have been doing it for a long-long time. All over the world. I think that it is for the benefit of humanity to immediately pour videos of a naked me into fires.

Faith, there's none of that. I've never been photographed or videotaped naked. Ever.

Faith, you're the opposite of reality.

I'm pretty safe - most Web cams don't have a wide enough angle lens for my bod ;-)

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Yeah but my webcam has a little red light that is on when it's on...so how would anyone be able to secretly use it?

You think they can't hack the code that turns the light on and off?

The most obvious thing wrong with most early 'internet of things' was/is that they often don't contain any protection from external entry - the absolute minimum must be a user changeable username and password.
