NSA surveillance storage capacity now in "yottabytes" on EVERYTHING you do
"This power and capacity combined with the ever expanding surveillance network means that pretty much everything you write, everywhere you go online, every YouTube video you watch, every Facebook posting you make, every cellphone call you make or receive (including from where and to whom and where the recipient is), every text you send and receive, every public place you walk through ... it will all be captured, stored, analyzed, categorized, and filed ... quite possibly forever."

To analyze data and crack encrypted content the National Security Agency (NSA) have computers capable of exaflop (10 to the 18 floating point operations per second) performance.

The Bush administration's secret authorization in 2002 (exposed in 2005) allows the NSA to eavesdrop on communications within the U.S. They were restricted to intercepting overseas communications only prior to that.

The Utah Data Center to be completed in 2013 has $2 billion budget, houses 1 million square feet and capable of storing data on the scale of yottabytes!

A yottabyte is a septillion bytes -- with no term yet for the next higher magnitude. In 2009 Google's CEO estimated the size of the internet at roughly 5 million terabytes of data, or 1/2 zettabyte... so one yottabyte would be 2,000 times the entire internet.

kilobyte (kB) 1,000 bytes
megabyte (MB) 1,000,000
gigabyte (GB) 1,000,000,000
terabyte (TB) 1,000,000,000,000
petabyte (PB) 1,000,000,000,000,000
exabyte (EB) 1,000,000,000,000,000,000
zettabyte (ZB) 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
yottabyte (YB) 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

This has been reported in the media so I wonder what their TRUE capabilities are?

Unfortunately, this abuse of power and invasion of our privacy seems unstoppable.

You are to loose on gladly give up your privacy. And no one reads the data... the data is processed... and referenced as desired... and used in AI and modeling probabilities, possibilities and alternative realities outcomes... for power and control... and loss of freedom and liberty.

You have no idea. What they tell you about is so old...

Consider this, an AS400D mainframe. Had 4 850 meg drives when it came out, 25 years later, the largest drive to the public was only 175 megs. What do you think they really have now they have let that data you are spouting out.?????
