Last week Amazon signed a contract to provide digital data on cloud computing and information on customers to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). For $600 million over 10 years, Amazon will spy on their customers for the federal government.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has agreed to assist the CIA in building a “private cloud infrastructure” with data mining technologies to expand the CIA’s surveillance capabilities.
AWS provides software that will allow the user to “run virtually everything in the cloud: from enterprise applications and big data projects to social games and mobile apps.”[...]Last year, Broadcom introduced an RFID chip to be installed in “many models of [Google’s] Android phones” that could locate the user within a few centimeters, vertically and horizontally, indoors and out. . . In theory, the new chip can even determine what floor of a building you’re on, thanks to its ability to integrate information from the atmospheric pressure sensor.”
