According to testimony by a former AT&T technician before Congress, the NSA has been using AT&T to listen in on God knows what.
Though the testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee by Mark Klein is not available due to a bizarrely coincidental "feed malfunction," his press conference yesterday gave an indication of what he was planning to say. Klein has been involved in a class-action suit against AT&T funded by the Electronic Frontier Foundation since January 2006.
Klein was expected to testify about a secret "secure room" operated by AT&T and overseen by the NSA. Klein contends the room, which included special equipment to duplicate traffic, was used by the agency for internet-traffic monitoring.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
