most of these things can be turned into spy devices pretty easily

You have a phone?
Ever use internet without vpn?

If yes, then what's the point of putting an effort to protect against one more thing? Let 'em have it all. Overflow their servers with data and they just might crash! Big Grin | :-D In this day and age we are all compromised by ease of access devices which are/can be effectively used to spy on you and there's very little you can do about it. A quote from Manhhunt: Unabomber is trying to get out of my lips here, but failing miserably.

If you don't compromise security for a phone or accessible internet access then kudos to you! But I neither have the resources nor the choice to act like a nomad or a monk and I think it's safe to say neither do most people.

You got one?

Nope, I don't see the reason to buy one. A guy in the office bought one used it for a week before he got bored and dumped it where no man shall ever go.
