Keep your private conversations private. The AJ-34 AUDIO JAMMER protects your sensitive room conversations by generating a random masking sound which desensitizes any near-by microphone. Effective against any microphone based eavesdropping device including tape recorders RF transmitters hard-wired microphones – including contact type – and shotgun microphones. It also protects against microwave or laser reflection pickups. Because the sound from the jammer varies randomly in frequency and amplitude it cannot be easily filtered and the only sound the eavesdropper will hear is the jammer noise. The convenient end-mounted control lets you select the level of protection for your situation. One unit will protect up to 150 sq. ft. For protecting rooms larger than this we recommend and additional jammer for each 150 sq. ft. of area. The illustrated instructions show suggested jammer placement for different types of rooms and situations so that you can use the AJ-34 effectively. The AJ-34 is powered by one 9 volt alkaline battery – included. The unit measures 4 x 2.5 x 1.5 inches and weighs 7 oz.

In 2004, a California computer whiz named Barrett Lyon uncovered the identity of a hacker running major assaults on business websites. Without fully grasping the repercussions, he set on an investigation that led him into the heart of the Russian mob. Cybercrime was evolving. No longer the domain of small-time thieves, it had been discovered by sophisticated gangs. They began by attacking corporate websites but increasingly stole financial data from consumers and defense secrets from governments.

While Barrett investigated the cutting edge of technology crime, the U.S. government struggled to catch up. Britain, however, was a different story. In the late 1990s, the Queen herself had declared safe e-commerce a national security priority. Agents from the London-based National Hi-Tech Crime Unit sought out Barrett and enlisted his help. They also sent detective Andrew Crocker, a Welsh former boxer, to Russia to track down and prosecute the hackers—and to find out who they worked for.

Data is everywhere. We create it every time we go online, turn our phones on (or off), and pay with credit cards. The data is stored, studied, and bought and sold by corporations and governments for surveillance and for control. "Foremost security expert" (Wired) and best-selling author Bruce Schneier shows how this data has led to a double-edged Internet – a Web that gives power to the people but is abused by the institutions on which those people depend.

In Data and Goliath, Schneier reveals the full extent of surveillance, censorship, and propaganda in society today, examining the risks of cybercrime, cyberterrorism, and cyberwar. He shares technological, legal, and social solutions that can help shape a more equal, private, and secure world. This is an audiobook to which everyone with an Internet connection – or bank account or smart device or car, for that matter – needs to listen.
