The Daily Dot - The NSA has nearly complete backdoor access to Apple's iPhone. I know. The fact that there really is no privacy in our communications is not really a surprise. But, as the revelations of the extent of NSA surveillance capabilities becomes known, I am of two minds. First, my Government needs the tools to fight some pretty serious enemies. Second, on the other hand, this is the land of the free, and free speech is not something that can be compromised. I have suggested that, since we likely can't stop the increase in technological ability to monitor communications among us that we increase the penalties for misuse of the technology, and create some oversight that is meaningful. Here's a thought. How about requiring a warrant, signed by a Judge, before communications of citizens are intercepted? I think there might be some Constitutional precedent for that. Of course, while we are debating these issues, I have a request. Since the NSA apparently has backdoor access to iPhones (and, I presume, Android phones), can somebody please contact my teenaged son and tell him to mow the lawn? While they are at it, is there any way they can contact my daughter and tell her to clean up her room? Thank you.
