This story made me realize that I have been following Slashdot since 1998, e.g. ~57% of my life. Wow, what a waste. :)

Seriously, CmdrTaco, congrats. It must be special to be part of something that has literally changed the world.

P.S. And it sucks to be in the 4 digit UID club.

Your best handset for freedom is the one which does not pass through the government-controlled networks. E.g., Iridium, Globalstar, Thuraya. I'm sure that this is the way at least some of the information is leaking out to the West. If somebody catches you with it - well, don't let them do that. Newer handsets are pretty small and look like normal mobile phones.
