Is privacy possible in the digital age?
Transcript of Is privacy possible in the digital age?
'In January 2011, the GSMA published a set of universal Mobile Privacy Principles that describe the way in which mobile consumers’ privacy should be respected and protected when consumers use mobile applications and services that access, collect and use personal information.'
''Of equal if not greater importance, however, is that Mr and Mrs Dowler were subjected to intrusive and insensitive press reporting at a time of intense personal distress. Such was the
appetite in certain sections of the press to acquire information and photographs which would enable ‘the story’ to be kept alive as one of ongoing human interest to readers, these sections of the press often overlooked the privacy rights and personal feelings of the Dowler family. Thus, the family came to be treated as little more than a commodity in which the press had an unrestricted interest.'' (Page 540)

GPS was created by the Raythoen Corporation in the 1950s.
Between 1983 and 1994, the USA developed GPS technology to be used more freely by civilians.
As devices get cheaper and smaller they are able to be used more commonly
"The Government can use GPS to track your moves"
"Most people carry their phones wherever they go, including their homes"
‘‘we were sitting downstairs in reception and I rang her phone ...
And it clicked through onto her voicemail,
so I heard her voice,
and it was just like – I jumped –
“She’s picked up her voicemails, Bob, she’s alive”
As Mr Harding put it, once the Milly Dowler revelations occurred,
“the way in which we thought about what was happening or what had happened at the News of the World fundamentally changed, and that was not just about how widespread it was, but about the nature of the journalistic Inquiry there.” (Page 621)
"There are 6.8 billion people on the planet. 5.1 billion of them own a cell phone, but only 4.2 billion own a toothbrush."
The term 'paparazzi' was coined in the 1960s
News of The World

Cameras and their lenses have become significantly better
''An article in the NoTW published on 12 May 2002 was headlined, ‘The Longest Walk’. The

of her girl as she and her hubby retrace her last footsteps.'' (Page 243)

YOUR APPS ARE WATCHING YOU
Apps and other programs on mobile phones transmit personal information to others without users’ knowledge or consent. In 2012, I was part of a team that developed and released MobileScope, an app that allows users to track every bit of information leaving their smartphone. The MobileScope app not only allows users to see just how much information their device sends, they can also control the flow of information and block apps that are potential leaks.

Article from the BBC On The News Of The World Phone Hacking Scandal:
People who were affected by TNoTW phone hacking:
"The average citizen us caught on CCTV 300 times a day"
"However, Mastercard still offer data analysis services to UK retailers- which means anonymised, aggregated information about what we are all spending on our credit card and debit cards and where we are spending it is potentially up for grabs to the highest bidder."
