If the polls are to be believed, 56 percent of you will soon be flipping to the Sports section. That’s the percentage of Americans who don’t mind that huge amounts of our phone call records and Internet activities are being tracked by the government. And maybe they’re right. Lots of people have nothing to hide.
But I sure do, though I’m not worried about the cops. Cellphone carriers, Internet companies like Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp., and companies with something to sell are all minding too much of my business. So I’m always looking for good ways to cruise below the radar.
