I know the secrets that you keep

Hey cell phone users out there. Iím not sure if this is a hoax or real, but damn

Yea, thatís interesting. Honestly I'm thinking its a hoax. I can't see how they would be able to do something like this. I know technology has improved, but there would have to be some kind of power to the receiver for it to get a signal to "turn on". Then again even when I have my phone turned off the clock still keeps track of time so I guess it could be on some kind of passive power supply. Still, I just don't see how this would work.

Hat Tip to IHMC(NSFW) for the story.

Most electronic devices are never really "off".
(Think about your microwave and DVD.)

If the software/firmware is in the phone to do so, it would be a piece of cake.

That's why they said the only safe bet is to remove the battery.

Sound like it only applies to cell phones with a GPS feature.
