    How cool is it when the elite class in America gets free advertising like this?

    The US Military (NSA) has required all Internet connected electronic device makers (Samsung, HTC, Apple, Google, Motorola MOTO X, Microsoft, GM, Chrysler, Ford, etc) to embed backdoor access in all software & hardware in those products to allow them (NSA) to monitor us instantly and easily (PC's, smartphones, OnStar System, tablets, xBox, Skype, Office 365, Skype, DropBox, laptops, PC's, cars, trucks, etc). Using this back door access the NSA now has the capability to store everything and anything about each of us (device audio, video, keyword searches, email content, web sites visited, contacts, GPS locations, etc) . They have your voice-print, and face image (for facial recognition). They (the NSA) have admitted they can turn on any of your devices at any time and use the microphones and/or cameras and convert all your conversations to text and store it forever.

    Wonder if the NSA listens in on his phone calls too?

    Looks a little bit thick but let's hope that it's because of a Razr Maxx sized battery.

  5. Schmidt's handset has the perforated speaker grill on the left side of the camera while the leaked image (the black phone) shows the grill on the right side.

    Wait a minute... That photo of Schmidt is so nicely posed, is very clear (DSLR quality), and has bokeh (blurred background). Hmm, are you sure Google didn't take this picture themselves?

    Looks awesome. Too bad it is way too similar to the Droid DNA and HTC One.

    Just trading one government spying program for another, all countries capable of doing it already does and those incapable are working on it. Knowledge is power and all governments know this so spying on citizens has always been something they do now it is just getting easier to do it.
