After tapping the Phone Compaines, what’s next? Microsoft Windows and Apple OS-X

Letter to the Editor

Now that we know that Bush has been tracking every phone call made by every person in the United States, or at least those made by AT&T and Verizon customers it makes you wonder what’s next? Has Microsoft or Apple collaborated with the NSA to plant spy software into Windows or Apple OS-X? Are they tracking everything we do online? That would be the next logical step in the progression of illegal spying. So I would ask Apple and Microsoft, hopefully before the fact, if they intend to cooperate with the NSA to illegally tap our computers?

I’m trying to bring up computer tapping BEFORE it happens, assuming that it hasn’t already happened. I think we need to go after this proactively and put pressure on corporations BEFORE the NSA forces them to sell out and spy on us.

Who says they haven’t already? It would be easy to put an application that records keystrokes and then emails them to the NSA, FBI, etc. masking it to look like communication from the os to company.

Hi,

I am writing to you to ask if I can borrow your letter requesting US Election Observers.

Um… Have you read the licence agreement to windows? Microsoft has full access to all of that information and when you clear your browser cache it sends a copy to microsoft and the same goes for your history as well as your history to everything you view in Microsoft Media Player. Apple OSX I have honestly no clue about but I know Linux doesn’t do that kind of stuff and if it did I could take it out cause of open source 😛
