Welcome to the modern surveillance state. Everywhere you go, there are countless hidden devices that could be spying on you, ready to splash your image and actions in front of millions for public ridicule. We mean smartphones, of course.

It’s really sad when a person can’t even hurl packages ten at a time into her FedEx truck without some muckraking jerk filming her on their cell phone. “We pick up and deliver millions of packages in a professional manner each year, and the actions in this video do not reflect our professional expectations,” FedEx told Gothamist in a statement. They claim to have disciplined the employee and her managers. (Thanks, Dov!) [More]
LiveLeak has posted surveillance video footage from earlier this month of a guy in Brazil installing a skimming device onto a bank ATM.
