Warrentless data seisures hah?

Read the article guys. Do you know what that means?

It means they won't need a warrant to tap your phones, and collect data from your mobile phones and wireless devices. Data that could be easily stolen by hackers and such.

They have been doing this thing for news.

However if they changed the law's about no longer needing warrants to go into your house thats a different story. I would be concerned.
