    iPhone snitch network launched


    iPhone snitch network launched





    A new iPhone App with the misleading name ‘PatriotApp’ attempts to draw on the power of the patriot movement, turning smartphone users into a gigantic snitch network.
    You might think an app with such a patriotic name might have useful functions like a pocket constitution or quotes from our forefathers. But contrary to the services one might expect, this app allows users to report any ‘suspicious’ behavior directly linking them with top government agencies.


    I am so downloading this and will flood it with "government waste reports".....

    I doubt this actually sends direct reports to government agencies.

    In any case, giving a bunch of morons a button that says PANDEMIC is a really stupid idea.

    Five bucks says you're just submitting your personal information to an advertising company.

    Back in 2001 the government tried in institute a programs called T.A.P.S, that was a rat-out your neighbor program. I signed up immediately, wanting to keep tabs on TAPS. The program was subsequently dropped before it ever got started. The same thing will happen to this program. The FBI doesn't want to waste time investigating ex-spouses that are late on child support payments as terrorists.
