+ - Cheap Storage Makes NSA Snooping Possible->

Submitted by jfruh
jfruh (300774) writes "There's lot of things we can blame for the state of U.S. government surveillance today — 9/11, a populace willing to trade freedom for the promise of safety — but add to the list advances in IT that have made data storage cheap in ways unimaginable just a few years ago. Though the prices to store all our communications are in the millions, they're peanuts to a government $150 million on a single jet fighter; the cost of storing every phone call made in the U.S. in a year is just a fraction of that."
