MR: Did you know that the police can turn your cell phone on remotely and use it to listen to your conversations? This is not sci-fi or the plot of a spy movie, it’s life in 2013 America. Smart tablets and laptop computers can be used in a similar fashion. Many people feel that if they’re not doing anything wrong what’s the problem with this. Nobody’s life is an open book. Our right to privacy is protected under the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution which prohibits unlawful search and seizure. Although using our technology against us requires a “warrant”, the potential for abuse, misuse and incompetent “leaking” of our private conversations in the sanctity of the home looms ominous over each and every one us.
