GOOGLE-SLAYER SETS SIGHTS ON NSA
A Stanford graduate student who has already stung Google for nearly $40 million over privacy violations is now targeting the National Security Agency, or NSA, to find out just how much the feds know about you.
The MetaPhone project asks volunteers to install an Android app that sends the researchers copies of a device’s call logs – much like the information collected by the NSA – and basic data from a person’s Facebook account.
“In the course of the study, your mobile phone will transmit device logs and social network information to researchers at Stanford University. Device data will include records about your recent calls and text messages. Social network data will include your profile, connections and recent activity.
The data will be stored and analyzed at Stanford, then deleted at the end of the study. [Full]
