The PRISM scandal and Snowden’s revelations about the NSA snooping around in private matters were a little upsetting for the gullible public. But it was just the tip of the iceberg! Big government has tentacles that penetrate deep into the structure of the laity. The cyber spying efforts of the government have gone way overboard.

Recent reports from the Def Con Hacking Conference held in Las Vegas showed that the FBI is light years ahead of both the NSA and PRISM. The bureaucrats sitting in the FBI’s command centers may routinely turn on a microphone in their computers and eavesdrop on unsuspecting people having conversations. Meanwhile, hackers seem to have developed such extreme cyber devices that they can break and enter smart phones and personal computers with relative ease.

The FBI seems to have a virtual monopoly over these covert tactics. It can even manipulate Android and laptop microphones from a distance. The FBI has been notorious for planting bugs on everyone from common criminals to the nation’s chief administrators. The fact that someone somewhere may be listening in to your conversation is a bit eerie if not downright strange.

The game the FBI is playing is even craftier than the hackers. The three main categories it is known to infiltrate through cyber spying are: terrorism, child pornography and the criminal underworld. Yet to just know that whenever you talk with someone on your iPhone, each and every word of yours is being recorded is enough to make anyone anxious and apprehensive.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
