Is Big Brother Watching you and recording everything you do?

Is Big Brother Watching you and recording everything you do?

Everything you do and click on using your computer is recorded and saved somewhere.

Your server knows your IP address and every web site you click on, when you clicked {8:21 PM March 8,2008} on it and how long{45 minutes} you were on it.

People will argue that this is not so but they are wrong

If your PC is up to date with Direct X and other Java software not only can a web site scan and see everything on your PC in seconds but they can record your IP address and identity and street address and name.

Dont take my word for it test it yourself

Go to a bunch of websites and click on digital cameras and watch what happensyou will get emails advertising digital camera and mail delivery to your door of digital camera deals. Same for autos and other merchandise..

How is this? I bought my son Dragon Naturally Speaking 8.0 and was helping him learn how to use it so I {live in North Carolina} installed it to see how it works so I could help him.{He is a science teacher in South Carolina} I used it for a week or two and then uninstalled it because I can type really really fast.He installed it and registered it in his name.

I never registered it at all and only had it on my PC a week or two and three months later got a phone call from Dragon Naturally Speaking asking me about their program I was running on my PC. I have never ever had any contact with Dragon Naturally Speaking whatsoever.

I bought Network Magic to test it and am amazed at what the program can doI dont like it but it amazes me, that it can record and report everything done on a PC {date and time} and send an email to the Network Administrator.

Is Big Brother Watching you and recording everything you do??YES YES YES

You have no privacy whatsoever on a computer. Dont think for one second Ghost Surf allows you to surf undetected or unrecorded. WRONGthey can record everything you do no matter how you try to hide or use proxies.
