ZEN & TECH 57: From NSA to cameras everywhere: Coping with privacy violations

By Rene Ritchie on 31 Jul 2013 10:53 am EDT

ZEN & TECH is our mobile lifestyle podcast, focusing not just on our phones, tablets, and gadgets, but how we can use technology to help us live better, richer, happier lives. It's how we center our inner geeks! Since it's security week on Talk Mobile 2013, Georgia and Rene talk about everything from camera phones in the locker room to wiretaps on the internet and how we, as private people, can cope in an age of where everyone from friends to family to strangers to governments may be spying on us.



While Georgia is a therapist, she's not YOUR therapist. Everything said or implied on this show is for informational and entertainment purposes only. And shouldn't be taken in any way as a replacement for proper, professional care.

Thanks everyone, you're the best community on the web and we love having you with us!

ZEN & TECH 57: From NSA to cameras everywhere: Coping with privacy violations


I've been saying this for years, digital privacy does not exist. So, in order to leave a lasting impression upon this digital world called "the internet", I say the most ridiculous things. So that I will be forever remembered as, not only the person who carves their initials into every new sidewalk with a stick, but also the person to carve permanent etchings into the internet for people to look at in the future as fossils.

I'm not sharing sh!t on Facebook anymore! Rene convinced me. Thanks to secure BBM as not government, companies or BlackBerry can track my encrypted BCs and messages!

Thanks for this video. I really feel privacy/security issues deserve regular articles.
I always chuckle when a business says I can feel confident in using their "secure" Web site. I always want to ask what their definition of secure is.

I dumped android for bb, moved from vz to at&t out of spite, never used Facebook or Twitter..

Used text secure and red phone when I was on android... eff the gestapo.

I shouldn't have to cope, I should be considered private in all aspects of my life. 4th amendment or gtfo
