      No it doesn't but to get the full features from the machine then it does need to be plugged in.

      If you take into account that the NSA has hacked the address books in Yahoo & Google in order to gain access to a list of people who we all associate with. This web of associates can grow exponentially as they will then look at everyone else's address books.

      Taking this into account, both the NSA and GCHQ can gradually build up a [icture of a person's life by looking at their on-line bank details (provided that they have hacked these too), you pattern of spending, what you medical needs are, who you live with, what your work is, where you have travelled and stayed (even within the UK).

      With TV subscriptions it may be possible to determine what things interest you.

      All these patterns can be used to predict what you are most likely to do (good or bad), even if you think that no one is watching you.
      20 years ago, when they investigated me, The Revenue knew exactly what was in my bank account.

      The way things have moved on since, I have no doubt that GCHQ could find out just what I had for breakfast if they so wished.

      During WW2 I believe their was a saying that 'walls have ears'. Well they most certainly still do. If you need to communicate anything securely then whisper it quietly in the recipients ear. You will still likely be caught on CCTV in the act but at least (providing you covered your lips with your hand) they won't have a clue what you said.

      In other news I'm getting a new tin foil hat this afternoon
