The Pentagon Wants a 'TiVo' to Watch You

Musashi Miyamoto Think about how much hard drive space costs. (256 comments)

I've been thinking about this for a little while. It currently would only cost on the order of tens of millions of dollars to record EVERY phone call made in the United States. It is totally possible that the NSA is ALREADY recording every single call we make, which would allow them to do retroactive surveillance just like this.

A single 300 GB hard drive (like the one I bought new for $60) can record around 10 years of continuous phone conversations.
