Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

Deep In an Underground Basement in Arizona

Deep in an underground basement in Arizona, there's a nerdy little guy who only sleeps for 1 hour each day. It's his job to read through all of the data collected by the NSA. People wonder how he manages to read all of it; but the answer is simple - he can read really fast.

Of course I'm joking. The point is that it doesn't matter how much data they collect. What matters is how much of that data they can actually process.
