    I was wondering, if it is possible for Big Brother (NSA-HLS-FBI) to take control of my Ipad (without my waiver) to listen and record video of everything I say or do in the privacy of my home?

    How would I know if a Verizon account had been activated.

    Grew suspicious because the Ipad with a case cover...would automatically turn on, when I lifted the cover allowing light onto the camera?

    How would I know?

    Perhaps, I'm a bit overly suspicious...but...I have stories to tell about intrusive surveillance in which The Patriot Act Section 215 was used against me, yet...after charges were filed, there was no mention of how or what legal theory was used to gather the info?

    The Patriot Act is used secretly, in violation of The Brady Ruling requiring prosecutors to "turn over the entire surveillance file"?

    Thus, no one can challenge the Patriot Act in court, because there is no notice of it's use? A Discovery Order is always rubberstamped by judges, but prosecutors seem to ignore "secret off paper" civilian contract surveillance files?:mad::eek:

    How would anyone know...if Big Brother is monitoring and not minimizing the intrusion pursuant to a court order?...and...without warrants, then prosecutors have to acknowledge abuse of Pat Act Section 215 (..."we can seize anything from any source that we deem relevent to an ongoing investigation"...).

    Remove the tinfoil hat. The iPad automatically wakes up when using a case that supports it. :)

    That's a very quick response for my first ever post at this forum...are you working for Big Brother:confused:?

    The reason why the problem bothered me was:....why would merely allowing light onto the camera (removing the cover) turn on the computer? I guess...one could "turn off the Ipad" rather than putting it to sleep...some have said, "you shouldn't do that"?

    I think the Ipad, is capable of being a live bug recording everything said when it is asleep...no? What would stop Big Brother, who follows no law and admits nothing to any judge or prosecutor or defence counsel?

    Umm, it's because the iPad has magnets in it as well as the case. It has nothing to do with the camera.

    If you're concerned about privacy, place some tape over the camera holes.

    By posting here they now know you are on to the ipad so check all the smoke detectors, behind the electrical receptacles and switch plates, light fixtures (and bulbs) and the toaster. Always talk by running water. If a bipolar blond chick wants to sleep with you just go with it, you'll be fine, she's on your side.

    It's not about the light, it's about the cover. There are magnets inside of Apple's cases and covers and most 3rd party ones specifically to wake it up if you lift up the cover. If you don't want it to do that then you need to go into the settings and under General turn off the iPad cover lock/unlock which is on by default.

    Good point. Behind electrical sockets and light switch plates are where they tend to hide the bugs. This guy should definitely inspect behind every one of them in his house. And since they probably know his closest friends and family, he should do the same to theirs.

    Wasn't that a movie starring Al Pacino?

    The hat will block all monitoring of your iPad. Better keep it on.
