"originally designed with the FBI six years ago. It calls for the retention of "every phone call, every mobile phone call, every fax, every e-mail, every website's contents, all internet usage, from anywhere, by everyone, to be recorded, archived and be accessible for at least seven years," notes the journal. The proposal gives law enforcement agencies powers far beyond authorised, approved interceptions."

Just what kind of hard drives are they using anyway. even this will be saved ???

As much as I disagree with the idea I think the system set up would be very impressive.

somehow i dont think that it would be feasable to store all that information, while still possible

every phone call and mobile call are understandable, but can you imagine the storage requirements for every web pages contents and all internet usage

hmmm, i'm sure the govt' has an unlimited supply of hardrive space actually



but storing it all and sorting it would be so tedious it'd be worthless

Sure it's possible. Almost every hard drive is manufactured by a company with a major headquarters in the US, I'm sure it would be almost nothing for the govt to make a deal with them to make part of each drive inaccessible to the user, but only to the government...and ol' Microsoft Bill could implant special code in his OS to allow special remote access to this sector of the drive only to the government. Ever wonder why there are so many AOL disks being handed out? Those are pieces of the data...:Q



Unless the government is hiding some special technology from us (WORKING solid state drives, perhaps?), this whole thing is near impossible.

We have working solid state drives. Do a Google search for &quot;quantum rushmore.&quot;

SSD would not be cost-efficient enough to use for a task like this.
