I totally get ya. I find it odd that so many otherwise sensible news organizations would run with something in PopSci as a story and taking no effort to vet it.

I have a lot of crow to eat if this turns out to be for real... it would at least have been nice for the reporters to check with a couple of independent sources.

Yahoo finance is normally pretty reliable, and this story had Reuters as a reference source. But my intuition was that something about it might be fishy, hence my vetting disclaimer.

Well like I said I don't know for sure that this company isn't on to something, but I find it amazing that they developed a product, offered it for sale, and THEN this story broke (by them) about these mystery towers.

So either they knew about them all along and quietly developed their product so as to have a huge jump on the competition (possible, but risky) or they are trying to scare everyone into buying their stuff. I am not going to pretend I know anywhere near enough about the technology under discussion to comment on whether or not any of this is possible, but that fact that all roads in this topic lead back to the same guy makes me very suspicious.

I hate that kind of stuff! My father would have been all over it, eager to spend the $3,500 to try to stay one step ahead of the bad guys. One time we barely stopped him from trying to out-smart a scam artist.

This story is all over the web, but all of them reference the same story in PopSci, which is presented as a story, with no clear indication it's an advertisement, but all information and quotes in the story come from this one company and their claims, complete with details about how you can acquire one, whether you need one, etc.

MSM is notorious for not doing sue diligence. An immediate example comes to mind, Dan Rather story about GWB. For which he lost his job.

I saw that. It's Yahoo! not doing their homework, and using an advertisement disguised as a news story in Popular Science and running with it.

The advertisement is for Cryptophone 500, which promises to protect you from said evil towers for $3,500.

That's not to say that there isn't some truth to the concept that this is going on, but shame on Yahoo! for taking a story which is just an ad disguised as a story and running with it.

I haven't vetted this story, but if true, very troubling.

just wondering if both tv's just happened to be in the room or did he actually take the time to go get another one from the living room?

people in the room: "are you ok?" "yeah i think so." "think you can run?" "probably, why? "i think i just heard him unplug the 48 inch plasma."

I had a thread going - long abandoned - called "How NOT to have a threesome" in the 3-some threads. It included that story (the TV's) and several more.
