You honestly think in 2 seconds you can identify a problem that a bunch of guys, who've spent years developing a technology, haven't considered, let alone addressed? Read the article, it only takes you 2 other seconds.
A state spying on it's own citizens... shameful. I'd be outraged, unless of course they said it was part of the war on terror, or whatever China's current favorite boogeyman is.
