#5 In the Middle Kingdom, TV watches you.

Whereas in America it's Alexa. Built into the tablet you got from Amazon, like the one on my desk here that I can't seem to turn off.

#7 Faraday Cage, Thing, Faraday Cage. I wonder is one of those Mylar "space blankets" would make a good pouch for your tablet?

#8 I was actually using the Amazon tablet as a kindle. I don't really have anything to replace it with to read my kindle books on right now if I smash it.

As I think I pointed out to 3dc earlier, I can't just throw out all the modern technology that might be eavesdropping on me, I'd probably have to walk out into the wilderness and live on locusts and wild honey, and there aren't any good places to do that any more. I'd probably just get a giardia infection.

#9 walk out into the wilderness and live on locusts and wild honey

Careful. Some of those locusts are actually bugs, if you know what I mean. Nudge nudge, wink wink. Don't get me started on the "squirrels". Just ask the Paleostinians!
