Snowden Should Really Enjoy Russia

From Radio Free Europe:
The head of police for Moscow's subway system has said stations will soon be equipped with devices that can read the data on the mobile telephones of passengers.

In the July 29 edition of "Izvestia," Moscow Metro police chief Andrei Mokhov said the device would be used to help locate stolen mobile phones.

Mokhov said the devices have a range of about 5 meters and can read the SIM card[...]

Mokhov said it was illegal to track a person without permission from the authorities, but that there was no law against tracking the property of a company, such as a SIM card.

It is really time to think about personal workarounds to the surveillance state.  The surveillance state is not going to be shutdown here, or in any other high technology country, anytime soon.
