Dang! And you know if criminals can do it, the government is likely using the same if not more sophisticated software.

It would be nice if embedding wasn't disabled. That way, the rest of us could see this video.

Just click on the video again, and it will take you to YouTube .... I don't think Blondie has control over the embedding mechanism.

so it is true. geezz. great. that's dandy. this whole thing reminds me of that movie eagle eye.

what's the point of the cell phone if you are waiting for a call but for someone to not listen to your conversations, you have to take the battery out.

how does the password thing work anyways on your cell as the guy mentions at the end?

Thanks. I saw it and I think it's been happening for years....

But I have nothing to worry about because I'm not a terrorist or criminal, lol....I don't say anything incriminating in my phone conversations or texts. Meh.

Why should tapping be any different in the U.S., isn't this a part of the Patriot Act?  Israel has been doing it for a while...

Uhhhh .... actually the point the video makes is that any person can obtain this software, and can stalk and harass you and your family, and the police have no way of tracking it. You can become the victim of a faceless criminal. If you use a cell phone, then this does affect you.
