    When whistle blower Edward Snowden told people just how easily the government could compromise their technology and spy on them, the immediate response was some variation on

    "Oh, crap! My laptop? My cell phone? People can see that?!"

    OK, that's a bit hyperbolic, but you catch our drift. People immediately sought ways of securing their data and protecting their gadgets from prying eyes.

    Now, Snowden is here to help.

    On an episode of Vice, the man himself shows correspondent Shane Smith how to make a smartphone go black by removing the cameras and microphones so they can't be used against you.

    Find out how to do it yourself in the clip from Vice, which airs 11 p.m. on HBO.

    Snowden isn't doing this to help all the people that the government doesn't give a fuck about but rather he is doing this to help out terrorist groups carry out their attacks by not getting caught.

    Would love to see all the future threads "oh shit I blew away some components" "so I did remove the camera and the microphone but now my phone won't start"
    If you don't want to be watched by a low tech phone.

    "he is doing this to help out terrorist groups carry out their attacks by not getting caught".
    Because the goatfuckers couldn't get this info without his help ofc understand... Go build a wall or something.

I'm not talking about terrorists, because they can't pin point shit to be that accurate, i'm just waiting for the next whistleblower posting a couple of tb with people taking a shit and masturbating :)

    Instead of removing the camera and possibly destroying the phone, why not just put a piece of duct tape over it instead? Better yet, why not just switch your phone off?

    Besides Pretty much every government having intelligence agencies collecting information and sorting though it, there are private companies as well that do it. Why are you only concerned about the Americans "spying" on you but not the Chinese,Indians,British,Israelis,Russians etc.

    Removing the camera is one thing considering I use my DSLR when I want to take pictures, but taking out the microphone and mounting an external microphone would be too much for me.

    What? Collecting and sorting though information keeps nations safer and brings larger profits to companies, unless you are involved in some kind of high risk illegal activity you have nothing to worry about.

    Yeah I've thought about getting a nice DSLR, good point. The only downside is that I take my cellphone with me everywhere, and it takes decent photos. Not DSLR quality of course, but decent enough for my purposes. And IMO it outweighs having to lug around one more thing in my work bag that I take everywhere.

    That's some clean washed opinion you got there... do you use your brain for own thoughts once in a while or only worship massmedia/government-organs?

    I don't worship the government or mass media, but they are there to prevent chaos from getting out of hand meanwhile people like snowden don't care at all about people and just want to see the world come into chaos.

    How about giving some worth reading counter argument? Basically, you are just bashing his opinion with no points at all.

    Then I apologize... I gave up arguing with people with 'opinions' like that which are the exact copy of what he has been brainwashed for. No offense, but did you ever try to teach a rock common sense? It has nothing to do with arguments. It's either believing the BS massmedia/government throws at you, or using common sense.
