Covering everything from the "News of the World" hacking scandal to identity and credit theft, "Popular Mechanics Who's Spying On You?" features stories of real people whose privacy has been violated. It looks at the technology powering those intrusions, the advances in security that may eventually protect us and the social and legal ramifications of our increasingly complex and high-tech society.
