People fail to recognize how much tech is kept for themselves... The NSA, AKA "The Big Ear", has everything. Your compete cellphone records and browsing history, your internet history, your purchasing history, banking history, political posts, facebook, instagram, google, amazon, porn preferences, you name it... Combined with an advanced artificial intelligence algorithm, they can suck all that data into one place and create your complete digital profile for viewing and analysis. They know you better than you know yourself. And to UW's point, they know everyone else around you, too. For the NSA, there is no place to hide... no 'anonymous' activity online... there's a million pieces of you scattered around the internet of things. The NSA collects all those pieces and puts them together in on nice, neat, and orderly place... and it is then weaponized.
