"Mohammed Hassan writes in Network World that he found a keylogger program installed on his brand-new laptop — not once, but twice. After initial denials, Samsung has admitted they did this, saying it was to 'monitor the performance of the machine and to find out how it is being used.' As Hassan says, 'In other words, Samsung wanted to gather usage data without obtaining consent from laptop owners.' Three PR officers from Samsung have so far refused comment."


invasion of privacy is on the increase and Samsung just got caught red handed. Even more interesting is what did they plan to use it for? DHS database?

I wouldn't think they'd give a shït once they got their money so there is a DHS (or gov) agenda.

No linky, so I stinky...

but the Tavistock Institute is laying out the master plan
for what is known as "eGovernment".
In Finland as well as other places.

Anyone interested just google Finnish Ministry of Transport
and Communications Tavistock etc etc.

But the MSM does not seem in the least bit interested.

Who knows, in what ways and levels the rabbitholes connect.
All hail democracy.

I just read the article, they have updated the info.

Even if they don't have a key logger, safe to say that all packets are scanned these days.

Agreed Yankees, nothing on the net goes without monitoring. For a newer place about 6 weeks online, the amount of visitors we have is outrageous.
