According to this iphone can be used by nsa to spy

So my question is how easy and likely is it?

Does android and Windows phone not have the same problem?

Ps while we're there I put finger prints on the iPhone unlock system thinking they're not going to be shared ... was ia fool?

Deleted my previous post. So many of these articles at fud and link bait... I doubt anyone knows the full story.

Cheers,
Joseph

This is apparrently so. The talk that article mentioned is available at http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumId=48&topicid=138381

It's in the second video I believe, which outlines the technology spy agencies(yes, that includes New Zealand's) can use for surveilance.

It seems there's not a lot they cannot access, all without people knowing that they are doing so.
It pointed out in that video, they can turn on the microphone and make the phone call somewhere silently, without the user knowing. Along with accessing anything on the phone itself(more than the user can access it seems to me).
