    Microsoft's latest marketing campaign, launched in April, emphasizes its commitment to privacy with the slogan: "Your privacy is our priority."

    Similarly, Skype's privacy policy states: "Skype is committed to respecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal data, traffic data and communications content."

    But internal NSA newsletters, marked top secret, suggest the co-operation between the intelligence community and the companies is deep and ongoing.

    Yeah, but this isn't news. Those guys with the foil hats have been saying 'the government/computers are watching us' since the 90's, man. You should listen more.

    Confirmed suspicions are no longer conspiracy theory - its the new reality.

    Guess what, they know everything about you! Everything! They know when you poop, they know when you masturbate, they control your brains through TV and much more. Muhahahaha!

    They say the NSA can read the time off your wristwatch

    Well I don't wear a watch! I check my phone!

    In summary, we're doomed

    We're not doomed. It's the new age. Everyone can spy on everyone. We just have to behave and not steal to much ;)

    Everyone could spy on anyone before the Internet as well. If NSA was "stealing" Skype traffic without Microsoft knowing it, that would be the world as we know it. But when Microsoft is working officially with NSA, and the latter has a newsletter that boasts about that "cooperation" - thats just disgusting.

    How do we know that you aren't an NSA agent, trying to get us to install fake privacy software that will actually
    monitor every conversation ?

    I saw it earlier in the news, and for some reason it looks like a genius business plans that rides on the shockwave of the recent events. They didnt even bother to decentralize it, merely took the good old jabber protocol and started fund-raising.

    I'm surprised everyone here seems so nonchalant about it.

    In the Philippines, I can grab a new disposable cell number for 75 cents. You can't do that in the US, because they couldn't track you nearly as well. I'm willing to bet that 99% of people reading this has had an issue with collecting a payment or sending a payment, directly related to the security measures put in place so the US can control every penny spent (all in the name of protecting you).

    http://www.usdebtclock.org/ Take a long hard look at that.

    Microsoft, Google, phone companies and every other large communications related company gives the US direct access to your info. NSA budget has been guessed at being 22 billion a year (top secret so no one knows). There's too much military profit on the line. Now they're building a huge data repository in Utah. Expect that you send an email, write a post online, mention the wrong words and you're flagged for an analyst scrutiny. A friend of a friend says something and you're flagged by association.

    Go read 1984 if you haven't already.

    Its because there aren't many GSM providers and the average income is more in the united states. Thats why the price is high, but you can get phones in the U.S. without giving out any details or showing your ID,its just going to cost $10 for the number.

    Nothing new... then again if NSA becomes interested in you it doesn't matter what you're doing you're still screwed. My strategy is to watch a lot of porn hoping they will get lost in that traffic and not see my secret plans to conquer the world :D:D:D
