Leaky Apps and Google Maps and NSA Monitoring

James Glanz, Jeff Larson and Andrew W. Lehren on the NSA's data-napping of information from so-called "leaky apps," such as the popular game "Angry Birds." The NYT, The Guardian  and Pro Publica are sharing the story on how the NSA and the UK's Government Communications Headquarters have been quietly seizing information about individuals by monitoring their use of apps, Google maps, and other popular mobile add-ons. This information, like much about NSA's covert activity, comes from Edward Snowdon.
