The documents identified several technology companies as participants in the PRISM program, including Microsoft in 2007, Yahoo! in 2008, Google in 2009, Facebook in 2009, Paltalk in 2009, YouTube in 2010, AOL in 2011, Skype in 2011 and Apple in 2012.[22] The speaker's notes in the briefing document reviewed by The Washington Post indicated that "98 percent of PRISM production is based on Yahoo, Google, and Microsoft".

Thanks for the info. For what I gathered the agencies that would use it must think I am a person of interest. :smt045

Yaa....I'm just a little creeped out. Is this not a civil liberties and freedoms/privacy issue or am I wrong?

What privacy?

Even the newer cars gather data on us these days.

Got those google devices in your home? They are listening devices too.

Smarttv? It's watching you.

Iphone? Android? Use of Credit Cards? Use your passport? See all the security cameras everywhere?

The only privacy people have today is to buy with cash. And when that is gone....
It must be nice to live in an Ivory Tower, where everyone else makes mistakes. I have no idea what an ivory tower looks like.

I'm not sure. I re- formatted not long after I found it.I took a pic from my phone.
Now that I think about it, I probably shouldn't have done that as the only proof I have
is the pic.

Oh yeah, proof... that'll be handy.
