PROFITS from wireless snooping are expected to go through the roof in Western Europe, as personal privacy is sacrificed at the altar of the big bogus phantom named Security.
Research outfit Juniper reckons snooping revenue will reach nearly €3.3billion by 2012, as employers track people, people track their kids and their pets and official snoops track everyone with a beard.
The process will begin with companies tracking their staff, Juniper reckons. Once folk get used to that, other agencies are likely to join in and soon everyone will be keeping tabs on everyone else.
Companies will introduce the idea as a service to "vulnerable staff" and it will all seem fine and dandy in the beginning.
By 2012, Juniper Research estimates around 21 million phones and 15 million vehicles will be being tracked on a regular basis. µ
