Cellphones in the Tube
We’re always a little wary of that very blurry line between protection of the general public and infringements on basic civil liberties, but it would appear that according to the Financial Times by way of the Guardian, at least one UK cellphone carrier not only has the power (and mandate) to remotely install software over the air to users’ handsets that would allow for the kind of monitoring we thought only perverts and paranoiacs had access to: picking up audio from the phone’s mic when the device isn’t on a call. While don’t think the backlash on this one has really gotten underway yet, and though we do hate to rock a cliché, we can’t help but be reminded of that classic Benjamin Franklin quote, “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” What’s worse, a cellphone carrier and The Man are gonna take it from us without our permission on the sly?

So the prevailing thought is then, to really prevent against gov snooping, take out the battery, wait five minutes, and then continue with any sensitive discussions that may be taking place. Reading through the comments at the link, many people have said this technology has been around for a while. You can even have your phone turned off and they can still listen in. Unless you're in one of those steel cages. Why wait five minutes? Even though the battery is off, there is still power running through the hardware. Just like you can get zapped by TV's and computers that are not plugged in, the same thing occurs here.
So remember, your cell that never leaves your bag/hip/pocket is operating essentially as a microphone.
Comment from a friend:
Think about this....the technology to make cell phones has existed for 115 years! It was invented by Nikola Tesla in 1891! In fact everything we consider to be "modern technology" has been being perfected for almost a hundred years!!!
Tesla had a plan to give FREE power to anyone in the world capable of installing a metal rod into the ground in 1910, but was sabotaged by both J.P. Morgan (International Banker) and Continental Edison (Tom 'EVIL' Edison, and his cronies).
Nikola used to sit in his Laboratory in Colorado, and create 10,000 megawatt lighting storms....just for fun. He determined the exact frequency of the planets harmonic convergence, a means by which anti-gravity power became a reality. In 1911, he flew the worlds first flying 'saucer', utilizing his new technology.
Tesla also wrote the plans on 'weather modification' and designed a real working antennal array, to manipulate weather patterns from any stationary spot on the planet.
That last one, weather modification, well whattya know. There is plenty of I-net discussion about whether or not Hurricane Katrina was created artificially. Weather manipulation is not very new to the government either...

"The U.S. and other world powers should sign a treaty to outlaw the tampering with weather as an instrument of war. It may seem far fetched to think of using weather as a weapon -- but I'm convinced that the U.S. did, in fact, use rainmaking techniques as a weapon of war in Southeast Asia."
- "United States and Other World Powers Should Outlaw Tampering With Weather for Use as War Weapon", Editorial by Senator Claiborne Pell, D-Rhode Island, The Providence Journal Bulletin, 1975.
"To preserve the cooperative, peaceful uses of space for the benefit of all humankind by permanently prohibiting the basing of weapons in space by the United States, and to require the President to take action to adopt and implement a world treaty banning space-based weapons. The term 'exotic weapons systems' includes weapons designed to damage space or natural ecosystems (such as the ionosphere and upper atmosphere) or climate, weather, and tectonic systems with the purpose of inducing damage or destruction upon a target population or region on earth or in space. Such terms include exotic weapons systems such as--chemical, biological, environmental, climate, or tectonic weapons."

"Some countries...are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important."
- Secretary of Defense William Cohen speaking at an April 1997 terrorism conference at the University of Georgia, revealing the existence of weather weapons
"Weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary... In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels."
- Air University of the US Air Force, AF 2025 Final Report
"Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised... Techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm."

"It's as if the entire Gulf Coast were obliterated by the worst kind of weapon you can imagine.''
