The end of privacy?

I know we lose are privacy, but even though I will never trust all cop, I believe it is in the right hands to let them get this information to save people lives and get stolen stuff back. And if your going to have secrets, there's no better place than to hide it in your brain. If you blogged it or told someone, then it is no longer a secret.

I admit it would be a little weird if I got a call asking if I saw any suspicious activity yesterday while at the mall. However, I don’t consider it a violation of privacy if I m a suspected for a crime. There is no stopping technology. It’s not like phones were upgraded specifically for police to locate people (or was it hummm?) it was just a side effect. I think the police should be able to use any means necessary. It will come a point when enough is enough, but until that line is crossed it is hard to set parameters. (alee wht 940)

Privacy is lost at birth. Now days privacy means nothing to anyone. The government has it's hands in everything.Unless you speak to someone face to face it's going to get out so be careful with what you say. All and all I believe the ability to track cell phones and phone recordings brings more good then bad. If your not doing anything wrong you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

People may expect their general whereabouts to be common knowledge, but not the conversations they’re having with whomever, or their stall location in a public restroom. Our phones have been smarter than the majority of us from their inception, and none of us could wait for the latest features so to one up the Jones' And now the right person with the right knowledge can download everything about a selected target by accessing their live signal, Wi-Fi, or blue tooth, then routing to a wireless server where it’s chopped up and auctioned off to highest bidder. Only to be discovered when they go the finance that newer car or just checking the credit score. If we are going to use a product it makes sense to know the product and its capabilities, and not get more than we need or can handle.

I think that this is one of those situations where you have to think do the pros out weight the cons? And if you ask me they do, but of course I won't be plotting some criminal activity on the phone and if the police need to find me I'm grateful that they can track me or whomever is in need on their cell. I hope that technology only gets better. A definite deterrent for criminals and a better chance of catching them...I like that.

Nazi Germany, Stalin, Kadafi are real and these types can take power again. Do you really want them to know all about you with just a click of a mouse? You do not need to be guilty or anything to be prosecuted and convicted in a police state. Why have none of the post prior to this one looked at that part of the long term price of how freely we give up our information, privacy and freedoms?

I used to think that privacy was a form of respect. I guess thats not the case these days. Privacy isn't really a part of our everyday actions anymore. People don't care if they burp in public, people don't care if they say something not meant to be said about someone outloud, but when somebody is trying to read their texts or emails they get all over protective, well they should know that the police is capapble of viewing EVERYTHING we are texting or saying. Society now is just beyond the point of ridiculous.

I believe that police should have this access, if it's needed for an investigation or something to that nature. Most will say it’s an invasion of their privacy but those seem to be the ones with something to hide. Although when something happens to one of their family members it’s a good tool for police to have, especially to get a leads to any crime. If you’re worried about some secret getting out maybe a cell phones, blogs and the internet are not the best places for them.

This is horrible, even text messages! Well at lest we can bust all the bad people. This is a good thing but also a bad thing because I cannot have a private conversion or text message.

I understand to use of the gps for the police, p.i's or whomever but not our text messages or other private conversations. We pay for a service that is meant for one person to use not for whoever to just ask for a warrant and get the information they want. That is just rediculous. There has to be a line drawn when it comes to your personal cellphone, computer, or whatever else.
