Hearing me whine about my lousy day should be rather interesting for governmental agents and other busybodies...?
MicioNero, 14 Jan 2010But in a bigger picture, this violates our basic right of privacy ...It does violate our basic right to privacy but there's nothing we can do. The fact that someone created that algorithm means they have access to it some how. all it takes for you to be tracked is for you to send a joke to a friend containing a word associated to terrorism. Now the government has enough reasons to trace you and eavesdrop. Only way to escape this violation of privacy is to create your own device, your own way of carrying the signals through the air without it being noticed. If its radio waves or microwaves, im sure there is a legisltaion out there that will tie you down.
like who really cares if you are calling your mum asking her to make you dinner cos you are getting home on time for a change cos there's no traffic
One last thing, the right would only be violated if the act were commenced... Just cause they can doesnt mean they will or have. As in this case... The government having an army doesnt violate your right to life...
Violation of privacy... Okay fair enough. But consider this, the code was cracked by researchers, most probably governmental. The government holds alot of our private info anyway, so its not like we complain about that. Lets face it, the right to privacy is really quite a facade once you dig deeper... With obvious exceptions, like blatant unlawful entrance to our homes. The right to privacy is always within reason and purpose. I really doubt the government would use it for purposes other than legit ones. There has to be a certain amount of trust in the people we entrust to run a country. This research is beneficial, the fact that they let us know that they can break the code is reassuring.
But in a bigger picture, this violates our basic right of privacy ...

who cares anyway... it's not like we use our phones for calls nowadays... we use our phones for internet and multimedia only.
