Researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have come up with a way to create a low-power, portable device that can see through walls using Wi-Fi signals


I think we should all have a naked revolt.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I was listening to a show the other day and they mentioned a new technology that would allow the new Smart Meter's to record and send images from every room in a house. At this time Smart Meter's seem to be pretty harmless and not too intrusive but with "Big Brother" starting to get into our lives more and more each day, who knows what technology will be used AGAINST us.

Many are more concerned with the risk of Cancer. Here is what the American Cancer Society has to say on that particular subject.

Verizon just got turned down (for now) for their new device that can listen to conversations in your home.

Creepy how so many want to know what we are up to 24/7. Thank you Big Brother.

Remember, as long as you say nothing subversive, you have nothing to fear.

Unless, of course, your name sounds or is spelled similar to that of a terrorist, or somebody fat-fingers your driver's license or passport data during record entry, or the social security number an undocumented worker makes up happens to be yours*, or you happen to interact with a government employee who's having a bad day, or...


* - This actually happened to a co-worker of mine; it took him weeks of back and forth calls to the IRS to straighten it out.
Self-proclaimed Jack-of-all-trades and google expert*.

* = Take any advice from this person with a grain of salt.

Tuttle, Buttle - as long as there's some official response to the terrorist actions.
One more name's worth of collateral damage compared to the loss of national confidence if nothing were seen to be done and no one found responsible...

This is very sad. Not because of the technology, but what it represents......the arrival of a large meteor that will alleviate everyone's fears of the future.

Yuk my shorts wouldn't make a good cup of coffee at all. I make my coffee with an expresso machine, and I make that coffer while I'm wearing just jockey shorts.
