It's not like before, having a microphone hidden in your workplace wasn't a problem. Now, it's just a slightly worse problem. I don't see that we're substantially more doomed than we were before.

I mean, if you're in the right place at the right time in Ottawa (and presumably any government town) you can buy pallets of not-very-old used computers with no hard drives for next to nothing, because the RCMP or CSIS or whoever has put a bolt through them and melted down the leftovers. The physical-layer stuff is a problem, but it's not one that's completely intractable.
